Stark County 

The following information has been carefully compiled by Heather Rooney, a dedicated friend of animals. Here is Heather's message for visitors: 
"There aren't enough homes for them all -- spay or neuter your pet!" 
Cost  should not keep people from spaying or neutering their pets.  Heather asks that you visit http://www.friendsofanimals.org/spaying/cover.htm where pet owners may purchase a certificate from Friends of Animals that can be used for a routine spay or neuter surgery at any of FoA’s participating veterinary hospitals. You may order a certificate using the online form at the link above, or you can call the FoA spay/neuter hotline at 1-800-321-PETS (1-800-321-7387).

YWCA OF MASSILLION-HANDS OF KINDNESS

330-834-0254       Fax 330-834-0402

Domestic violence takes its toll not only on humans, but also on the family pets who are often the first victim of the violence. As very few battered women’s shelters allow pets, this leaves many women with no choice but to stay in an abusive relationship because the love and concern for the pet. The YWCA’s goal is to remove this obstacle by providing a pet-fostering program. The YWCA Hands of Kindness will find a temporary safe home for the pet, veterinary services if needed, and a chance for the victim to get the needed help without abandoning the pet who has become her biggest ally in her abusive situation.
