ALL 4 PAWS is a local 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to supporting the Clarke County Animal Shelter (CCAS) in Grove Hill, Alabama. Due to limited county funding, ALL 4 PAWS plans projects that will be beneficial for both CCAS and the local community. One such program is a TNR program which stands for Trap, Neuter Release program to control the ever increasing stray/feral animal population in Clarke county. The name given to our program is SNYP which stands for Spay Neuter Your Pet program.
In our first year, ALL 4 PAWS formed a close collaboration with Tuskegee University College of Veterinary Medicine (TUCVM) to help spay/neuter animals at a reduced cost for our SNYP program. Many citizens have since brought stray animals to be spayed/neutered which has helped control the animal population in their neighborhood. As such, the TNR project directly benefits CCAS due to the fact that the more animals are fixed, the lesser the number of animals will be brought to CCAS by animal control and/or citizens. Over time, the TNR will help reduce overcrowding at CCAS, especially felines.
