Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for October 11, 2023

Floyd County Commissioners passed an ordinance requiring spay / neuter of pets, according to the Rome News Tribune.

That split vote consisted of Commission Chair Allison Watters and Commissioners Wright Bagby and Rhonda Wallace to approve and Commissioners Scotty Hancock and Larry Maxey against.

Hancock said the ordinance doesn’t go far enough to address the glut of strays in the county. Unfortunately, one way to deal with the issue is to increase the facility’s euthanasia rate, he said.

The Floyd County Public Animal Welfare Services facility on North Avenue is at capacity with stray animals. This has the effect of keeping animal control officers from picking up anything except dangerous or severely injured animals.

“We’re not 100% sure this will be effective,” County Manager Jamie McCord said. “But we are 100% sure that what we’re doing now is not working.”
