Many cats are in need of adoption
Jun 8, 2011
Special discounts at the Bedford County Animal Control Shelter is in effect for the month of June, in order to help celebrate Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat Month, sponsored by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, according to a new report from the Times-Gazette.
Special fees will also be promoted in terms of animal fixing, which includes spaying and neutering services.
"The Middle Tennessee Spay and Neuter Clinic will do it for only $30," Brenda Goodrich, the director of the shelter, told the news source. "If you want a cat that is old enough to be spayed or neutered, you can pay the adoption fee and the clinic fee and we'll take the cat to the clinic for you and you can pick it up when it is ready."
Cats and dogs should be spayed and neutered to help prevent the problem of animal overpopulation from escalating. The Humane Society notes that female cats who are spayed before their first litter are often healthier than felines who are spayed later. There are more than 93 million household cats throughout the United States.
