The Alberta Spay Neuter Task Force (ASNTF) is a registered charity that provides proactive, community based pet wellness clinics for communities that are experiencing pet overpopulation issues in order to assist with their approach to improve the health and well being of the dogs and cats in the community and to reduce human health issues that have resulted from pet overpopulation. Many communities do not have the resources that we have in our cities to assist with the care of their animals. The problem of pet overpopulation exists all over the world!
