You've seen them around: The cats that lurk around the Greenbelt poaching duck eggs and the stray dogs trotting down State Street. Strays are regulars in almost every city, in large part because some pet owners don't spay and neuter their dogs and cats. An explosion in the number of stray domestic animals is a humanitarian crisis, and Spay Neuter Idaho Pets—SNIP for short—is doing what it can to raise awareness about the issue.
Fortunately, SNIP isn't raising awareness with TV ads featuring close-ups of wide-eyed animals, it's doing it through the awesome power of booze. Tonight at Bardenay in Eagle from 5-9 p.m., SNIP will be the beneficiary of the distillery and restaurant's Charity Night, taking home 20 percent of food and drink sales.
