Some veterinarians in the East are trying to fix pet overpopulation by saving you some money.
All month, animal hospitals in Beaufort County have lowered their rates to spay or neuter your pet. It's an annual event, but this year they say the animal shelter is especially full because a new law requires the shelter to hold some pets even longer.
Sandy Woolard is the Animal Control Officer in Beaufort County and says, "We've been having to turn people away lately because our shelter stays full. With the new restrictions if people don't come in and offer proof of ownership we're having to hold those animals and not even put them up for adoption immediately because we have to see if an owner comes to reclaim them."
The reduced rates for spaying and neutering run through the end of February and can save you $30.00 to $40.00.
