How to “Fix” Pet Overpopulation (Video)

Pet overpopulation is a very real crisis in the United States, but in the State of Georgia it's particularly bad. The solution is not just to promote responsible pet ownership, but to also spay and neuter, so when Fix Georgia Pets founder Ginny Millner asked me to film a public service announcement for the organization, I readily agreed.

Spaying and neutering is not as important in some other states and countries around the world and in fact many countries actively discourage the practice, putting the emphasis on other ways that pet parents can be responsible rather than spaying and neutering. Indeed there are many health and wellness implications for both sides of the spay and neuter debate, but this is a moot point in Georgia, a state where pets are dying at an alarming rate.

FIX GA PETS LOGOFix Georgia Pets is a non-profit that provides funding to recognized spay and neuter organizations to help combat pet overpopulation in the state of Georgia. Their program is already making an incredible impact, along with other amazing organizations in other parts of the country doing similar great work.

The work they do is helping to prevent unwanted litters and keep dogs and cats out of shelters. The statistics are staggering -- one dog or cat can be responsible for tens of thousands of offspring, many of which will end up abandoned or euthanized in shelters.

My gratitude goes out to all of you fighting the good fight against pet overpopulation!

Our goal in creating this PSA is to educate the general public in Georgia about the importance of responsible pet ownership, and to emphasize just how big of an impact just one pet parent's decisions can make.

I encourage you all to watch the Fix Georgia Pets PSA, and please help us raise awareness by sharing the video.
