Spay pets for half price this month

Concerned Citizens for Animal Welfare once again is sponsoring Spay Day 2010 at Escambia County Animal Services throughout February.The Pensacola-based nonprofit will pay for half the cost of the surgery to have up to 100 pets spayed or neutered.

The goal is an effort to reduce the number of unwanted animals in Escambia County. More than 10,000 unwanted pets were euthanized in fiscal year 2009 by Escambia County Animal Services. The group will also pay for half the cost of the pet's vaccines. The program is open to low-income pet owners on a first-come first-serve basis.

To participate and see if you're qualified, call the animal shelter at 595-3075 or go to shelter at 200 W. Fairfield Drive from noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. This will be the 16th year Concerned Citizens has sponsored Spay Day, an annual effort promoted by The Humane Society and other animal welfare agencies.
