32 - CAPE GAZETTE - Friday, September I - Monday, September 4, 2006 DelDOT plans Litter-Free Clean Up Day Sept. 30 The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) will host its second annual Imagine A Litter-Free Delaware Clean Up Day on Saturday, Sept. 30. DelDOT has designated this as a statewide clean-up day when everyone is invited to come out and clean Delaware's roads, high- ways and community areas. This is also a day when everyone should stop and consider what a litter-free Delaware would look like and do what they can do to make the state cleaner and health- ier. It's also a time for Adopt-A- Highway volunteers and/or Adopt-A-Bike Path volunteers to do one of their annual clean ups. Businesses, citizens and home- owners are also being asked to ensure that trash is well contained, to pick up debris blowing around their property and to step outside to sweep a sidewalk, pick up sticks or rake some leaves. Pets must be neutered, inoculated prior to adoption A new Delaware law signed on June 29 establishes a preadoption spay/neuter program for cats and dogs and a spay/neuter fund. It is now mandatory for all cats and/or dogs of reproductive age to be spayed or neutered and inoculated for rabies prior to adoption. Failure to comply with the provi- sions of the law may result in fines. Persons who demonstrate economic hardship may apply for funding assistance from the pro- ceeds of the Spay/Neuter Fund to comply. Also, organizations that are nonprofit animal welfare agetlcies, artimall, rescues and/or animal humaneorganizations reg- istered in the state of Delaware may apply for funding assistance. The program is being adminis- tered by the Delaware Department of Agriculture. Initial spay-neuter funding assistance will come from a FY 2007 appropriation. Subsequent funding will be derived from a $3 surcharge that will be added to each rabies shot administered in Delaware on or after Sept. 1. The purpose of the spay/neuter program is to assist low-income residents and low-income com- munities. The Animal Population Control Program's goals include the reduction of the following: population growth among Strayand unwanted cats and dogs; and stray and unwanted cats and dogs entering animal shelters; and cat and dog euthanasia rates; and animal-inflicted injuries to humans (e.g. bites); and threats to public health and safety (e.g. from rabies and vehic- ular accidents). Anyone who own an un-spayed, un-vaccinated dog or cat, or those who think they qualify for funding assistance, or those who need more information, contact your veterinarian. For assistance in finding a licensed veterinarian, contact the Delaware Veterinary Medical Association by phone or fax at 302-674-8581 or visit www.devma.org. In addition, Secretary of Transportation Carolann Wicks is requesting that DelDOT mainte- nance forces pay special attention to cleaning Delaware's roadsides during the week of Oct. 2-6. Volunteers should register by Sept. 15 at www.deldot.gov, under Hot Topics or contact the Office of Public Relations at 800-652-5600. One free bag per participant is available on a first come, f'u'st serve basis when volunteers are picking up their supplies. Anyone cleaning Delaware roadways should stop by the near- est DelDOT district office to obtain safety information, safety vests and trash bags Sept. 25-29. Following the clean up, partici- pants may dispose of the trash themselves or filled trash bags may be placed near a traffic sign for DelDOT to pick up. To have DelDOT pick up filled trash bags, call 800-652-5600 to report the location. The rain date for the event will be Sunday, Oct. 1.
