Did you know that the cost of spaying and neutering a pet is less than the cost of raising a dog or cat for one year?* My husband, Zack, and I are passionate about reducing pet overpopulation and this year we will be participating in the 4th Annual “Pins for Pets – Bowl for the Fix.”
Pins for Pets raises money for spay and neuter initiatives across the state of Minnesota. And this year all money raised at the Pins for Pets event will go to MN-SNAP, the Minnesota Spay and Neuter Assistance Program. MN-SNAP operates a mobile veterinary clinic that provides high quality spay and neuter services to shelters, rescues, and low-income families across Minnesota.
If you are interested in reducing pet overpopulation, you can make a tax-deductible donation to our Pins for Pets fundraising page or you can learn more about Pins for Pets.

We don’t often get a chance to share our personal interests and passions with our clients, so you may not know how crazy we all are about animals (both domesticated and wild). Many of us have pets and are always swapping stories about them and their antics. Our desks and computer desktops are littered with pictures of our happy critters. The office itself even houses 3 Betta fish (Junior, Thor, and Snidely) and one Red-Eared Slider turtle (Pee Wee, or “PW”).
In an effort to engage our passion for animals outside of the office and in the community, ACET, Inc. has formed a local corporate team to participate in the Animal Humane Society’s Walk for Animals. We have titled the team “HAWT” (Helping All Wagging Tails). Kirsten’s husband, Zack, is designing t-shirts for us to wear on the five-mile walk on May 1.
Please consider joining team HAWT on the walk or making a tax-deductible donation for this cause. All proceeds go to the Animal Humane Society to help animals in need. For example, $50 in donations will pay for two stray cats to receive full vaccinations or $500 in donations can help three dogs through the Adoption Preparation program, which readies shy or fearful dogs for adoption.
To learn more about the Walk for Animals, join the team and raise funds, or make a tax-deductible donation, simply follow this link: http://events.animalhumanesociety.org/site/TR/Walk/General?team_id=9840&pg=team&fr_id=1110
If you can’t be directly involved, you can still help out by forwarding our team’s link onto anyone who might be interested in helping a great cause.
Thank you in advance for your support of this very worthy cause.
P.S. Stay tuned for a blog report on the walk and pictures from the event!
