Young-Williams celebrates 30,000th spay/neuter surgery

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)-- Young-Williams Animal Center will celebrate its 30,000th alteration surgery to spay or neuter cats and dogs in the Knoxville area since the Aslan Foundation awarded the center a grant for the Spay Shuttle in 2007.

Spaying and neutering pets is the single most effective, most humane solution to help control the pet overpopulation in East Tennessee, and spaying and neutering is also beneficial to cats' and dogs' health and behavior.

Young-Williams Animal Center offers low-cost and free spay/neuter services through the Spay Shuttle and the Spay/Neuter Solutions clinic at the Young-Williams Animal Village, where tomorrow's celebration will take place.

Pet owners qualify for low-cost or free surgeries for their pets based on income level, age and breed of their pet, and other key factors.
