Sheriff’s Corner: Spay or neutering your pets

-A A +A

We have been fortunate this week to have the N.C. State College of Veterinary Medicine at our Animal Protective Services facility in Supply, along with its spay/neuter van.

This free “Spay a Stray” clinic was sponsored by Petsense and managed by our friends at Paws-Ability. This was a great reminder of how important it is to have our pets spayed or neutered. Spay or neutering animals not only increases the longevity of their life and helps them live a healthier life, it also decreases the intake of unwanted pets into our shelter.

Additionally, if citizens have feral or stray cats on their property for help with rodent control, it is equally important to have these cats spayed or neutered. Female cats can have multiple litters of kittens per year, so getting these animals spayed is particularly important.
