Pasco County, like most areas in the United States, has a pet overpopulation problem. Traditionally, close to ten thousand dogs and cats in our community are euthanized every single year. Many of these are healthy, adoptable, beautiful animals that just need a home. Unfortunately there are not enough homes for this many animals and we can never adopt our way out of the problem. Therefore we must stop the production. The largest contributors to the over abundance of pets are the low income that cannot afford to spay and neuter even though they have the desire to, the uneducated and irresponsible pet owners. Dr. Joyner Mattox founded an organization called Spay Pasco who’s sole mission is to eliminate the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable animals in Pasco County. Spay Pasco helps reduce unwanted pet births by assisting the low income with spaying and neutering and helping to educate those pet owners that do not realize the beneficial health benefits of spaying/neutering or don’t realize that the offspring their pets produce may be destined for euthanasia. Spay Pasco also assists with the spaying/neutering of feral (stray) cats in our community that are often fed, but allowed to reproduce.
