CLIFFSIDE PARK, N.J. -- The volunteer no-kill animal shelter in Cliffside Park is asking the community to support its spay and neuter program by making a donation.
About 8 million dogs and cats enter shelters each year and about one every eight seconds are unnecessarily euthanized, according to a release from the shelter.
Spaying or neutering pets is good for their health. Male dogs tend to live 18 percent longer than unneutered male dogs and spayed female dogs live 23 percent longer than unspayed.
Donations are tax deductible. Make a check payable to Bergen County Protect & Rescue, memo check spay/neuter and mail to Bergen County Protect & Rescue, PO Box 1172, Fort Lee, NJ 07024.
Bergen County Protect & Rescue is a volunteer, non-profit, no-kill rescue animal shelter that takes in animals from 11 towns.
In 2015, Bergen County Protect & Rescue took into its care 635 animals, adopted out 397, reclaimed 142, and sent 23 animals to breed specific rescue.
The shelter is located at 302 2nd St., Cliffside Park.
