Vets urge folks to spay or neuter their pets

Knoxville, Tenn. (WVLT) World Spay Day is an annual campaign across the nation that shines a spotlight on spay/neuter - a proven way to save the lives of companion animals, stray dogs and or cats, who may otherwise be put down in a shelter or killed on the street.

Since Young Williams started its program, they've serviced more than 30,000 animals. Animal shelter overcrowding is becoming a huge issue across East Tennessee and organizations are looking to you for help.

If you can't afford to have your pet spay/neuter there are several programs that can help reduce the cost or free of charge: John R. Hamil Animal Wellness Foundation, Blount County 865-680-6572; Loudon County Humane Society, Loudon 865-671-8654; Mcminn Regional Humane Society Clinic, Athens 423-649-0370; Young- Williams Animal Center.
