 Connecting Animal Welfare Topics and Issues Across the 4Corners

Why Low-Cost Is Necessary
As an adult woman there are a few annual doctor visits I should be making every year
to be proactive about my health. These standard procedures are included in many
basic insurance plans and though I may have to pay a co-pay, the cost of procedure
is predominately covered by insurance. If I don’t have insurance other options exist
 1) specialty clinic’s such as Planned Parenthood offer annual exams on a low to
no-cost sliding scale 2) grants and no-cost options are in place and can be accessed
through the service provider and lastly 3) a health-specific credit line is
available directly through the treating physician.
This availability of service is one of the wonderful things about our country - and
the people that make it what it is.  If each of us is willing to be proactive about
our health; systems, people and organizations ensure lack-of money is not a barrier.

Mall Owners Stand-up  for animals
[HappyOliver copy]In communities struggling with overpopulation there are two major
factors involved: Too many animals coming into the system and Too few resources for
animals once they're there. Solving these issues takes different approaches. Too
many animals coming into the system is overcome by implementing multiple strategies
including affordable S/N and proactive TNR Programs. In the end, this issue is a
community issue and needs to be embraced by the entire community to overcome it.And
that's exactly what's happening in Phoenix. A business called Macerich which owns
more than 70 malls across the country and nine in Phoenix alone, has ended all
leases with pet stores and instead opened their arms to animal shelters and rescue
organizations.Anyone who's visited Maricopa County Animal Control in Phoenix can see
how this change can have a direct impact on the community. This huge facility 
houses more than 1,000 dogs and 600 cats on any given day. 52,000 animals enter
Phoenix Animal Control every year. 52,000!!!With numbers this staggering, importing
dogs and promoting breeding-for-profit should be outlawed. Lets face it, good
breeders don't sell their puppies at pet stores.
Hats off to the mall owners and the animal lovers that worked for years to make this
