Pet Population Control in Carter Co.

2-4-06 – Volunteers say they are working on a solution to a pet overpopulation issue in Carter County. The Ardmore Animal Care facility, with the help of volunteers, invited low-income families to bring pets to the facility for low-cost spaying and neutering.

Last year, more than 7,000 animals were brought to the animal shelter and most had to be euthanized.

This weekend, the clinic is helping pet owners on a tight budget afford spaying and neutering procedures for their pets.

Volunteers took care of fifty pets on Saturday and plan to see fifty more on Sunday.

Organizers say they hope to hold similar clinics every other month in order to help control the pet population.
