Humane society offers low-cost spay surgeries
Warmer weather may still be months away, but the Franklin County Humane Society wants cat owners to "Beat the Heat" by spaying their cats in advance of their heat cycles and preventing unwanted litters from being born this spring.
Animal shelters commonly refer to spring time as "kitten season" because that is when they receive the largest influx numbers of unwanted litters that are difficult to adopt.
That's why the Humane Society's Planned Pethood Clinic is offering a special Beat the Heat campaign, sponsored by PetSmart Charities, the largest funder of animal welfare efforts in North America. Planned Pethood Clinic will provide $20 spay surgeries for female cats during the month of February.
