Every year, over 4 million cats and dogs are euthanized in the United States. What’s frustrating is that the solution to this grim statistic could very well likely cost less than what taxpayers spend on killing these companion animals each year. Fixit Foundation was founded with the mission of ending companion animal overpopulation, and eradicate this pattern of euthanization. It is a charity for animals aimed at healing the illness rather than continuing to treat its symptoms.
More than 2 billion dollars of taxpayer money is spent each year collecting, housing and ultimately killing 4 million cats and dogs. There are many animal charities devoted to creating a better scenario for these dogs and cats. It seems so obvious that this problem could be easily solved. Why not direct the money spent on sheltering and euthanizing each year towards affordable spay and neuter programs?
This is the question Fixit Foundation asks. Influencing drastic changes in government funding, however, is not an easy task. Without research and data to prove this would be not only be successful, but cost-effective, the problem will continue to exist. Animal charities will continue to mitigate, but it won’t go away without a significant shift. Fixit Foundation is working to provide the proof, so a true solution can be implemented.
Fixit Foundation has been conducting controlled research studies on the effectiveness of an incentive-based marketing approach to increasing spaying and neutering of animal and decreasing overpopulation. In addition, they started getyourfix.org which enables direct donations for the spaying or neutering of a specific cat or dog. Pet owners who can’t afford the procedure are linked with people willing to cover the expense. Fixit Foundation is a truly remarkable animal charity giving us hope for the future.
