New Beginnings for Merced County Animals is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping the animals at the Merced County Animal Shelter as well other locations in Merced County. Our primary focus is helping to reduce the shelter’s euthanasia rate.
0:03 - The biggest problem here
0:04 - in Merced County is
0:05 - that people don’t
0:06 - Spay & Neuter
0:07 - Thirty animals come in a day here
0:09 - We last year transported
0:11 - Five thousand, one hundred and nineteen animals
0:14 - We go Colorado, Utah, Montana
0:16 - Wherever we can find people to help
0:18 - the animals, then we are there
0:20 - We wouldn’t be able to do anything
0:21 - with the euthanasia rate here
0:23 - at the shelter if we didn’t do that.
0:24 - For dogs
0:25 - we had it down to about 20%
0:27 - with cats, its still up to about 66%
0:30 - but that is with us
0:32 - literally working on it every single day
0:35 - of the year.
0:36 - We certainly can use
0:37 - good quality puppy food
0:39 - and good quality kitten food
0:40 - or you can go on our Facebook page

0:52 - that we can do
