Stochastic Demographic Simulation

I wonder if this post will get a lot of traffic because people will think I’m talking dirty.

But, no, this is just my typical passion for numbers and spay/neuter.

Let me share some numbers I just figured out this morning. I’m looking at an estimate for the cost of remodeling an existing animal shelter, never mind building a new one. For that same amount, they could fund a s/n clinic that wouldn’t just offer 5000 free s/n per year, but pay folks a “bounty” of $5 each to bring in their pets (or strays, or their neighbors’), pay a trapper/transporter to help, and do some serious advertising/propaganda about the importance of spay/neuter, for TWELVE YEARS.

Wouldn’t that do a lot more to save lives than any shelter building?
