Veterinarian and celebrity, Dr. Jan Pol star of National Geographic WILD’s, The Incredible Dr. Pol, #1 series and highest–rated telecast on the Nat Geo network urged that pet owners spay/neuter their cats and dogs on Pet Life Radio network's, Max A Pooch’s Awesome Animal Advocates.
Pol appeared as a guest on March 15, on Max A Pooch’s Awesome Animal Advocates as a follow-up to the work he had done with the chartable company Givebones during National Responsible Pet Owners Month. His mission along with Givebones was to promote and encourage pet ownership techniques, concentrating on communicating importance of the spaying and neutering of cats and dogs.
During his appearance on Max A Pooch's Awesome Animal Advocates, Dr. Pol explained companion animals, “Are living, breathing, feeling beings. It is such a waste and sad to see so many animals face euthanasia."
The need to spay and neuter cats and dogs can be put in perspective when one understands the number of animals that are put down each year. According to Dr. Pol, “Approximately 3.7 million animals are euthanized each year due to overcrowding and poorly-funded shelters. Spay and neutering is the best way to prevent overcrowding in shelters. I admire and support organizations like Givebones that recognize the importance of rescuing pets and helping shelters around the country.”
National Geographic WILD says of Pol, “Dr. Pol has serviced 19,000+ clients during his 35 years as a veterinarian. The Incredible Dr. Pol follows Dr. Pol and his wife Diane across rural Michigan as they care for every family pet and head of livestock in need of his traditional, no-nonsense expertise and kindness.”
