February is nationally recognized as “Spay/Neuter Awareness Month.” The purpose is to encourage people to have their pets sterilized before the spring and summer months when there is a rampant overproduction of puppies and kittens. During that time most animal shelters experience an unmanageable increase in animal intake. Spay/neutering helps to decrease those numbers and saves pets’ lives.

Contact your veterinarian to schedule an appointment for your pet or for information about participating in the free weekly transport from the Humane Society of Greenwood to Spartanburg’s Animal Allies’ low-cost clinic, and to find out about their February “Beat the Heat”’ special offer, please call (864) 576-6971.

Please do your part to prevent unwanted litters.
