Eastern Kentucky pet owners are taking advantage of a free spay and neuter clinic.
A clinic is underway in Whitesburg in Letcher County.
About 200 animals are expected to come under the care of veterinarians and volunteers with the Humane Society of the United States by the end of the week.
This is the mobile clinic's first stop ever in the mountains.
Thousands of Kentucky's unwanted cats and dogs often wind up in shelters and in some places the overwhelming majority of them are put to sleep.
