Shreveport non-profit celebrates major milestone
Shreveport, LA (KMSS) — Robinson's Rescue celebrates its 25,000 spay/neuter surgery milestone Thursday, December 5th.
The center, now located at 2515 Line Avenue, originally opened its doors in 2008 and works to reduce dog and cat overpopulation and euthanasia in the region while maintaining high standards of medical treatment for the animal patients.
Robinson's Rescue has a Subsidized Spay Neuter Incentive Program (SNNIP) supported by the Caddo Parish Commission that allows low income citizens to have their pets spay or neutered for FREE. Additionally, an outreach education program called PAWS educates children on the importance of spay/neuter.
Local shelters are overflowing with animals that need homes, and it is through increased spay/neuter efforts and education in Northwest Louisiana that the numbers of animals entering shelters will gradually decrease, and thus decrease the number of animals euthanized at our local shelter.
Robinson's Rescue seeks to accomplish its mission by facilitating low cost spay/neuter surgeries, inter-agency involvement with other humane organizations, and humane education outreach throughout the regional community.
