“Fixing” Breast Cancer?
Breast Cancer awareness isn’t just for humans! When a Chicago based designer offered to donate 50% of her Feb 2012 sales to S/N @ a Chicago humane society, she did so in memory of her once otherwise healthy, but un-spayed cat, diagnosed with breast cancer in ‘08 & dead 2 weeks later. Per the Veterinary Information Network: For dogs & cats spayed before sexual maturity, mammary cancer is “virtually unheard of.” Brynn Capella was unaware of this, as are many pet owners. Now she knows. But, too late for her cat.

SERVING The Underserved
Click on the link, or email us, for a study re how to reach the underserved, a focus of many S/N efforts. It’s filled with one "Ahh-Ha!" moment after another: how to find the under-served pet owner, how to win their trust, how to convince them to S/N, why NOT to do "breed specific" out-reach, the importance of frequent contact & follow up, what "advertising" approaches best reach this audience, why the belief that such outreach efforts draw from private practices is a myth, why shelter intake/ disposition stats don't tell the real story, and more....!
