Spay-neuter clinic succeeds in preventing unwanted pets


First Posted: 9/14/2010

To the Editor,

I would like to thank all the citizens of Robeson County who brought their dogs and cats to be spayed/neutered last week; it was wonderful to see so many responsible owners bring their pets.
By having your dogs and cats spayed/neutered, you have prevented approximately 31 million cats from coming into the world unwanted, unloved, abused, mistreated and approximately 49 million dogs during the next seven years.
If we all work together, we can end the overpopulation of animals in Robeson County and hopefully our county can set an example for the rest of North Carolina and be a “model” for ending the overpopulation of our voiceless, helpless animals who desperately need our help.
My goal is to have a spay/neuter clinic in Robeson County but in the meantime we will continue to help those citizens who have animals they want to have spayed/neutered but are unable to afford to do so.
I plan another spay-neuter event in October and will notify you of the date; if you wish to participate, please call (910) 674-4994 for information.
I would also like to thank Frances Stayton, Jean Pait and Jackie Locklear for their tireless help with this endeavor. And a very special thank you to Dr. Garrett of the Animal Hospital of Fayetteville who through his generosity made this possible.
