Pet Groups United (PGU) is a coalition of animal welfare agencies in Kentuckiana. Recently, PGU has announced that it will expand its services to include efforts to reduce and eliminate the euthanasia of companion animals in the area. PGU member groups work together within each agency’s own specialty, to unite the animal welfare community and end the killing of adoptable animals.
To kick off this new mission, PGU is donating $1800 to local spay/neuter efforts in celebration of World Spay Day. The non-member agencies that will each receive a $300 sponsorship to go directly towards spaying and neutering include:
“It is well known that cities who have adopted broad scale, collaborative efforts have reduced or eliminated the euthanasia of adoptable animals,” said Jeff Seidenfaden of PGU. “With our coalition, we cover all the important aspects of this mission by providing; animal sheltering, pet adoption, low-cost spay/neuter, foster care programs, pet rescue and pet education. And there is no incremental cost or infrastructure necessary since our members have their own facilities and decades of experience! It is very exciting!”
PGUs member organizations are: Animal Care Society; Animal Protection Association; Louisville Metro Animal Services; New Albany Floyd County Animal Shelter; Shamrock Pet Foundation; Shelby County No Kill Mission and United Rescues of Kentucky.
