Video Length: 34 minutes

There is nothing like actually doing something to convince you that it can be done! That's what Erie County, New York, found out when they set out to save all their community's treatable pets, and saved 65 percent of them in a single year. Cats with chronic urinary tract infections, pets with diabetes - and yes, a paraplegic pit bull. They did it, and so can you. Find out how from Barbara Carr, Executive Director of the Erie County SPCA, in her fantastic HSUS Animal Care EXPO 2012 presentation.
