Humane Society Fighting Pet Overpopulation
The Humane Society of Genesee County is taking definitive steps in reducing the pet population in the county. The prior policy placed a charge on adopting the animal, with a fee toward spay/neutering, but up to 50% of the people never followed through with the veterinarian. Now, the Humane Society is pleased to announce that it will be adding a new spay/neuter addition to the complex with part-time or voluntary veterinarians. It is breaking ground with ceremonies on August 31st at noon.In all, the Humane Society estimates that there about 500 animals that fail to get spay/neutered each year, and the new system will help make sure it is done before the adoption process.
