Macon Animal Control joined the Macon non-profit Central Georgia CARES to offer the second low cost "Spay Neuter Day" in Bibb County Saturday.

At the first event in May, Central Georgia CARES President Patti Jones says so many pet owners signed up, they began a waiting list.

Saturday, veterinarians performed the surgery for about 65 more cats and dogs.

The surgeries cost much less than typical vet prices.

People paid between $25 and $85 for the procedure that Jones says usually runs at least $125.

Susan Helton, Bibb County, says she signed up her four-month old Dachshund, Barney, to help reduce the number of stray animals in Bibb County. 

"We have so many animals that get euthanized every year because of overpopulation and I don't want to be a person who contributes to that problem," Helton said.

Jones says spaying and neutering helps curb the county's stray animal overpopulation problem. She says Macon Animal Control takes in nearly 6,000 animals each year.

She says they'll hold more spay and neuter events this November and January.
