Your Support Makes a Difference

Every dollar raised by the Tally Top Pet Photo Contest is used to support Be The Solution in providing low cost spay and neuter vouchers in our community. Be the Solution has spayed and neutered over 35,000 pets since 2007, which has had a dramatic impact on our local animal shelter. In 2009, the animal shelter’s total pet intake was 10,537 with a 57% euthanasia rate.  Ten years later, in 2019, total shelter intakes were 4,929 with a 23% euthanasia rate. Clearly spay and neuter prevention helped to reduce shelter intakes by 53% and reduce the euthanasia rate by 40%.

Help us continue our spay and neuter preventive work by showing your support when you enter the Tally Top Pet Photo Contest.
