According to the ASPCA of the United States, over 6.5 million animals enter shelters across the US every year. A large number of those animals are the result of unwanted/unexpected litters, or strays reproducing. Unfortunately, here in the south we deal with this problem more because of a lack of laws to protect our companion animals, education, and funding for low-cost spay & neuter programs. In Alabama, over 19% of our population lives below the poverty line. In the more rural counties, this number climbs significantly, up to even 30%. These individuals struggle, every day, and many of them are pet owners.
Cans For Kritters is a 501(c)3 organization that was born out of a desire to help work towards ending the pet over-population crisis here in the south by assisting individuals with Spaying & Neutering their pets. We do this by collecting aluminum cans, and tax-deductible donations from incredible citizens. Whether help is assisting in lowering the cost of the surgery, providing transportation, or just explaining how the surgery works, we are 100% committed to helping the families and individuals of our area.
Our volunteers, administrators, founders, and directors operate under a strict rule of "No Judgement." ; We understand that everyone's circumstances are different, and life can change in the blink of an eye. We believe that the vast majority of pet owners truly love their animals, and to some, it is all they have. We are dedicated to providing help, compassion, and understanding.
