Frequently Asked Questions
Q - What is your goal/mission with Muffin's?
A - Our endeavor is to Reach, Teach and Educate about the health and behavior benefits of spaying and neutering a cat or dog. Muffin's also counsels about the magnitude of pet owner responsibility, obligations, the cost and commitment to a pet BEFORE adopting. We believe that a well informed client makes a conscientious pet owner. We recommend doing 'homework' before bringing a new life home. Always think 'thrice' before adopting a 'cute puppy or kitten'. Look at the bigger picture and make sure your life style fits having a pet. Can you afford the medical and maintenance for a pet? Remember, killing healthy, adoptable pets is preventable. SPAY/NEUTER is the solution to this pet overpopulation crisis.
