Save Your SAGA Humane Society
 
For 10 years the SAGA Humane Society has provided valuable services to the Town of San Pedro and now it may be forced to close.  Please Act NOW.
 
Over 75% of the money needed to provide the community with a Humane Society comes from the veterinary clinic SAGA runs, which provides both free and for-charge care.  It is this income that pays for all of the other services.  NOW, the SAGA veterinary clinic may be forced to close, putting the entire Humane Society at risk and out of business.  If SAGA cannot employ a full-time vet, we cannot generate the income to offer all the many free and low-cost services we currently provide. 
This is what SAGA does for you and the animals of San Pedro:
 
* Dog Patrols to pickup stray, dangerous, diseased, maltreated, abandoned or injured animals.
* Responds to complaints of dog attacks, dog fights, noise nuisance and other negative interactions between the animal population and humans.
* Provides free rabies shots for all animals.
* Provides free or low cost medical treatment for animals belonging to those suffering financial hardship.
* Provides a shelter to house, feed and treat the homeless or mistreated animals of San Pedro.
* Provides animal adoption services, providing many local families with much loved pets and guard dogs.
* Assures that all people who want to adopt are able to provide good care for the animal.
* Assures all animals placed for adoption are spayed or neutered and have been given a clean bill of health with all shots up to date.
* Provides free or low cost spays & neuters to help prevent overpopulation.
* Provides humane euthanasia when appropriate and eliminate the need for the Town Board to use poison as an alternative.

* Provides educational programs to help the people of San Pedro learn how to care for a healthy, happy pet.


If you want to help, please contact SAGA urgently to sign their petition to save this very valuable service to the community before it is too late.  For 10 years we have helped San Pedro.  We need your help now.

At first glance it would seem that financial woes are the reason.

There is a fundraiser yard sale this sunday at the central park from 8am on til after lunch time. Please come and participate!

There is also a fundraiser ball at the end of the month planned. I will post the details tomorrow.

I have adopted a Saga cat who is a great addition to our family. I think that the island needs an animal shelter to care for strays and adoptable animals so if you love animals and pets please show your support to this cause.

What is the petition? To whom is it addressed and what is it asking for? Have SAGA been refused permission to have their own vet?

I have read the petition. This issue is more complex than it appears. Presumably the Licensing Board has declined to issue a license for SAGA's new vet? What reason did they give? How did they consider SAGA should operate, without its own vet? Or did they just not care? There must be a lot we aren't being told.
