The newly created “No Unwanted Pets: Spay/Neuter Coalition of Grand Traverse Area” was formed by AC PAW, HANDDS to the Rescue and UN-Cats. These three organizations have distinct, yet similar missions. AC PAW has a goal of helping homeless dogs and cats through rescuing these animals, fostering them in homes, and adopting them to forever homes. HANDDS (Helping Abused, Neglected, Disabled, and Displaced Souls) is dedicated to saving those dogs that would otherwise be euthanized due to lack of space, medical conditions, or severe injuries. The mission of UN-Cats is to provide shelter, food, medical care, and adoptive homes for cats, especially those with feline leukemia and FIV positive.
One common mission of all three groups is promotion of spay and neuter; thus the formation of the No Unwanted Pets: Spay/Neuter Coalition of Grand Traverse Area. United together, the mission of this Coalition is to reduce the pain and suffering of dogs and cats caused by the devastating over-population problem in the Grand Traverse area.
While each group promotes spay/neuter within their organization, the problem of too many unwanted dogs and cats is unrealized and wide-spread in their community.
