Animal dumping is becoming a big problem in Pitt County. That's where people abandon pets at shelters. Officials say it is illegal. Just last week, four cats and kittens were dumped at facilities in Pitt County. Even shelter workers say more and more dogs are being abandoned at the Pitt County shelter. To help control the pet population, Saving Graces for Felines does offer a very low cost spay and neuter program for cats for low income households.
