Community Partnership for Pets

Putting technology to use, CPPI used their county animal shelters statistics on owner surrenders and euthanasia to formulate a mailing program to attack the problem at its source. Bilingual materials, serious neighborhood networking at community gatherings, pet stores, etc., and negotiating flat rate services with cooperating veterinarians provide a three-pronged approach to reducing their animal overpopulation problem. And after seven years of dogged perseverance, in 2012 Henderson County Animal Services reported the intake numbers dropped 22% from 2011, for the first time in the shelter’s history! Quite an accomplishment in a time of such economic difficulties. Learn more about their success.
