International Society for Animal Rights (ISAR), based in PA, has long advocated for the spaying/neutering of dogs and cats in order to reduce the number of animals who end up in the shelters or on the streets. Although shelters try to cope, some of them sometimes must euthanize animals in order to make room for others because people dump unwanted animals on them. The life of a dog or cat on the street is likely to be short and unhappy.
Now ISAR has expanded its message (billboards, etc) to include Spanish. It also has translated it’s model spay/neuter laws into Spanish. Learn more at:
