      Its a place where you can take abandoned animals. They keep them til they are adopted but with cats if they have feline lukemia or are badly injured they put them down.
      I am just glad they do keep the rest til they are adopted out.
      I wondered how many other cities have this.

        these show the ones existing for most of the world - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Society_for_the_Prevention_of_Cruelty_to_Animals#SPCA_organizations_by_continent

        plus apart from North America, Europe, Asia, Australia/Oceania, throughout South America and the Caribbean there are SPCA's also and other similar associations

          Wow alot more than I ever knew of.
          When we lived in the country in Kentucky there wasn't any one to call if there was a sick dog hanging around.

            I try to promote people looking for pets on petfinder.com. It is so easy & they even have purebred animals there. PLEASE check into adopting before BUYING a new pet. You can type in the breed you want & the sex & your zip code & it will show you every animal in a pound in the United States!

            That's how I found my dog.

              I think that is wise because there are so many people on the news hoarding animals that can't take care of them and they end up at the pound too.
              I say adoption is way better.

                My dog would sure agree that adoption is great.

                  We have AFL (Animal Friends League) and PAWS (something Animal Welfare Society).

                    Thats really cool. I Was reading on our SPCA site they have dogs with shots and spayed and neuter for 20 dollars you can't beat that. I would like a nice dog, but no more cats. I can't handle anymore than I have.
