Millionaire Offers $75 million for Pet Overpopulation Solution
So here’s the deal: Come up with a non-surgical, one-time way to sterilize cats and dogs and get $75 million.
That’s the offer a retired and very, very wealthy doctor will be making through his non-profit Found Animals Foundation.
Gary Michelson will give $25 million to the person or group that comes up with a non-surgical sterilization method, and another $50 million to fund supporting research.
Michelson believes that the large sum will help encourage numerous people to seriously focus on making non-surgical sterilization a reality within the next 10 years.
It is hoped that finding an easier, cheaper means of spaying and neutering pets will help put an end to shelters euthanizing 4 million-6 million animals every year.
