Pet overpopulation is a serious matter. Everyday, throughout the nation, our shelters are faced with overcrowded conditions and euthanization of healthy, loving animals. No one wants to see these homeless pets destroyed.

Please consider the following information and make the decision to support spay/neuter of family companions. Wally's Friends™ needs your help to achieve its goal to dramatically impact the numbers of unwanted animals destroyed in shelters and starving on the streets. Prevention is our greatest hope.
