Celebrity Based Charity Spay/Neuter Assistance Programs
by Dogasaur on February 9, 2010
Celebrities are often some of the most giving and outspoken advocates for animal health and welfare. Many of these celebrities have either founded or are affiliated with organizations that provide assistance to pet owners such as those that canâ€™t afford to have their pets spayed or neutered.
One such organization is Southern California based â€œActors and Others for Animals.â€ Some of its celebrity members include; Lily Tomlin, Bruce Vilanch, Peter Marshall, Florence Henderson, Carole Cook, Mary Jo Catlett, Rip Taylor, Tippi Hendren, Harry Kullugian, Carol Channing and A&O President JoAnne Worley.
Passionately believing that pet overpopulation is the greatest breeder of animal cruelty, Actors and Others is the leading spay/neuter assistance organization in Southern California. Actors and Others for Animals subsidizes over 1,200 procedures monthly for pet companions (including rabbits, guinea pigs and the like) of seniors, the handicapped, AIDS patients, and others living on a low and/or fixed income. Actors and Others for Animals works closely with low-cost veterinarians throughout Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura Counties.
