An awesome organization from my town of Asheville, NC was featured in USA Today this week.
The Humane Alliance is a non-profit group of vets and other professionals who are saving thousands of lives by performing efficient, inexpensive sterilization procedures — and training others around the country to do the same. According to the USA Today article, last year alone HA spayed or neutered more than 23,000 animals in western North Carolina alone. TWENTY-THREE THOUSAND. That’s a lot of adoptable lives potentially saved from euthanasia. HA is so good at what they do that they’ve been trusted with millions in grants from organizations like PetSmart and the ASPCA.
