Pet Over Population Prevention (POPP) is a local non-profit, all-volunteer, NO-Kill pet organization dedicated to promoting responsible pet ownership thus preventing the needless death and suffering of companion animals. People contact POPP when they can no longer care for their pets. They have found a stray, are moving, allergic, or have too many pets, etc. Owners are responsible for altering their pets and for ensuring they are current on their vaccinations prior to enrollment in POPP. Assistance is available for altering pets through the spay/neuter assistance program. POPP's goal is to assist our community with affordable spaying or neutering of their pets and to find forever homes for abandoned and unwanted pets. POPP is an all breed rescue organization. Pets are kept in foster homes until they find their “forever homes”. POPP does not operate at a profit. The adoption fees and donations received in no way cover expenses. The cost of fostering, food, and veterinary care are supported by the generous contributions of concerned pet lovers.
