Knoxville (WVLT) - A local animal center is celebrating 1,000 free spay/neuter surgeries on their "Spay Shuttle."
A family found a stray cat they named Buttercup, and in just a short time she gave birth to a litter of kittens and then became pregnant again.
They heard about the Young-Williams Animal Center Spay Shuttle mobile unit and Buttercup became the 1,000th animal to be spayed or neutered.
The Spay Shuttle is funded through a $2.5 million grant from the Aslan Foundation and a $210,000 grant from the Lucille Thompson Family Foundation.
To schedule an appointment for a free spay or neuter, call Young Williams at (865) 215-6677.
