Require all adopting people to spay and neuter the pets they adopt, if possible have it done by a local vet that keeps in touch and gives a discount as we have here for animal rescue group. Require all animals be spayed and neutered unoless they are for breeding purposes and do that by having leash laws and fining any owner that does not comply. Use the fine money to pay for animal officers and spaying and neutering discounts. Have programs for elderly folks to have free neuter and spay for companion animals, and offer them services if they are worried about after care when they pass on, a contract with them to take the animal back and find it a good home. This way older people would become foster parents for their lives as long as they are able and it is shown to be healthy for them. Have free spay and neuter clinics by local vets donating their time, at least very reasonable fees for people that really can't afford it. Have fundraisers at all functions like fairs, carnivals, bake sales whatever. Get schools involved, give them ways to generate funds, selling products, fundraisers, carwashes. There is really a lot that can be done just have to motivate people. Also, advertise in the paper asking for donations and put pictures of pets that are ready for adoption, but make sure they are fixed. Set up pound animals in good weather in front of pet stores and other stores to adopt them out with fees paid and certificates given for a percentage off the fixing of the adopted pets by certain vets. They still make something but they can write it off their taxes, if it's done right. Good for all concerned, if it's non profit right?
