Fundraising aims to cut pet adoption cost

ABC News, Dec 4 2009

A Horsham woman is raising money to subsidise the cost of adopting animals from the Horsham pound.

Earlier this year, the pound changed its method of euthanasia for animals from shooting to lethal injection and has started a rehousing program.

But Lydia Ward says the costs of desexing can run the cost of adopting animals to several hundred dollars and she is raising money to help offset the expense.

She says in the past two weeks more than 30 cats and kittens have been destroyed because homes could not be found for them.

“I’ve done two markets so far which have been really successful and generated a lot of interest,” she said.

“People have purchased quite a bit which has been really good.”
