An Over Abundance of Furry Friends for Adoption!
ITHACA, N.Y.(WENY)-- Many shelters and animal rescues reinforce the importance of spaying and neutering your pets to cut down on over population and the abandonment of animals. Saturday morning, the SPCA of Tompkins County teamed up with the Schuyler County Human Society to not only speak on the importance of fixing your animals, but to also show off the surplus furry friends they have for adoption.
"We have several kittens because people do not spay and neuter. So these are only a handful of our adoptable kittens right now and we have a waiting list of more to come in," says Jackie Pastore, Animal Care Associate at the Schuyler County Humane Society.
The Schuyler County human society has an overa bundance of cats, to where the SPCA of Tompkins County has one too many bunnies with possibly more on the way! The SPCA brought out these hopping friends to try to get them adopted to a good home and explain why they are a hopping good time.
"Rabbits are really great pets, they're not the high maintenance that a dog is. If you spend time with them, they can be very affectionate, they're relatively clean animals, not very costly either as far as their food and vets bills are not as high as dogs and cats," says Carol Turton, Volunteer at the SPCA of Tompkins County.
Both of animal rescues have more than just bunnies and kittens for adoption, but they wanted to bring out the animals they have the most of in hopes to get the adoption ball rolling.
All of the animals shown in the video above are available for adoption!
