The Humane Society of Charlotte (Charlotte, North Carolina 28203) is excited to announce their first pit bull spay/neuter promotion called Operation Pit-STOP Overpopulation, which they are conducting in conjunction with Charlotte Mecklenburg Animal Care & Control, the SPCA Alliance, and the American Pit Bull Foundation.
Their goal is to spay and neuter over 100 pit bulls that would otherwise go unaltered. They are conducting this campaign in honor of Spay Day, a national annual campaign of The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International, to inspire people to save animal’s lives by spaying or neutering pets and feral cats.
Throughout the month of February, HSC will be setting appointments for pit bulls to be altered on a first come, first served basis. Each surgery costs the Humane Society of Charlotte an average of $65. They are collecting funds to help them reach their goal to sterilize at least 100 dogs. If you are interested in donating to the project, please contact Donna Canzano at 704-494-7704. If you are interested in scheduling an appointment, please contact Clinic Manager Tammy Cornell at 704-377-0534, ext. 233 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Following fast on the heels of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Maine, Michigan, Ohio, and Oregon, Washington is poised to become the next state to pass legislation banning the cruel confinement of farm animals.
Washingtonians for Humane Farms submitted language to the Secretary of State to place a statewide measure on November’s ballot. The coalition of animal welfare, family farming, food safety, and environmental groups proposed a measure that will prevent animal cruelty, preserve the environment, and protect consumers and small farmers.
The measure would require that egg-laying hens have enough room to turn around and extend their wings and that eggs sold in the state are produced in compliance with this humane standard. It would prevent one of the worst factory farm abuses: the extreme confinement of egg-laying hens in small cages where the animals can barely move for their entire lives. If approved by voters, the measure would take effect in 2018, giving producers more than six years to transition to more humane housing systems.
