Pet Owners Take Advantage Of Free Spay & Neuter Clinic

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.

    This is a very needed service in this area but I was very upset to not find any contact informtion or dates with this article. Also this story wasn't posted until 8/6 evening and when I did finally find out about the event (after a couple hours of calling everywhere)I found out it had been going on all week and they were already booked solid and ending on 8/7 or 8/8. This story was really of no help to anyone wanting the service because of the time aired and the lack of information provided because appointments were made prior week because letcher county had in the paper before the Humane Society ever arrived so the people in that area had plenty time to register for the service.

    Is expensive to fix the animals . where can I find this clinic, I have 4 dogs and 3 cats that need this done. that would be about $500.00 and this would help out a lot. cause I can not afford to do it . all the animals are not mine but they hang out at my house. the neighbors dont care if its done and thay cant afford it either. so I need an location and time if anyone can help me I would greatly appreciate it. thanks

    THAT IS AWESOME! IT SHOULD COME TO PARTS OF E KY MORE OFTEN. FLOYD CO HAS A GREAT PROGRAM, SNOOP, THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH ALL THESE PROGRAMS ARE PEOPLE ARE TO LAZY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THEM. PETS ARE NOT A PRIORITY. AND THAT IS SAID. A FEW DOLLARS TO SPAY OR NEUT. AN ANIMAL IS ALOT CHEAPER THAT FEADING A LITTER OF PUPS OR KITTENS. TRUST ME THATS HOW I GOT 17 CATS AND AT ANY TIME 5-8 DOGS BECAUSE ALL THE NEIGHBORS ANIMALS KNOW TO COME TO MY HOUSE TO GET FED. THEY EVEN COME HERE WHEN THEIR HURT AND SICK. IT'S REALLY SAD.
