The Henry Humane Society is offering low-cost spay and neuter for pets, according to the Henry Herald.
Last year alone, in Henry County, Animal Care and Control took in 2,929 animals of which 1,135 were euthanized.
Overpopulation is a huge problem in Henry County, said HCHS Board Chair Shenan Griffin.
“What we’re trying to do with this program is to decrease the number of euthanized animals and increase the number of altered ones,” Griffin said.
The program works like this — any Henry County resident can get their cats or dogs spayed/neutered. The price is $20 for cats and $30 for dogs and includes a rabies vaccine. They even offer a free shuttle service to the clinic for pet owners.
Griffin said the program is on a first-come, first-served basis with a limited number of surgeries per month due to funding. The shelter is absorbing approximately $95 per spay for dogs, $75 for neuters and $40 for cats.
