February 26th is World Spay Day, an annual campaign by the Humane Society of the United States to spread awareness and promote spay and neutering programs.
In this week's Get Answers, 13WMAZ's Jennifer Moulliet spoke with one local veterinarian to see what's out there for low income families who need spay and neutering services.
To get answers, she spoke with Doctor John Hutchens at Westmoreland and Slappey Animal Hospital in Perry.
Dr. Hutchens says there are different groups in the Central Georgia area that assist low income families with spay and neutering for their pets.
"I usually recommend folks to call our office Westmoreland and Slappey Animal Hospital and talk to our office manager. She's kind of our liaison with the state funded programs. Each month, each of our doctors gets a particular quota of animals that we can spay and neuter with the help of tax payer dollars"
Hutchens says, "There's plenty of them out there. It's just a matter of finding out which one that you fit into based on your income, as far as what type of animal you have. The sky is the limit as far as the options out there."
