On September 15, 2015 the Humane Society of Morrow County, in partnership with SNACK (Spay & Neutered Abandoned Cats & Kittens, Inc.), held their first-ever mobile spay/neuter clinic at the Big Walnut Joint Fire District.
Cats were the target group for this clinic. Fifty three cats were spay/neutered as a result of the clinic. The RASCAL unit out of Columbus was the mobile clinic that performed the surgeries.
Morrow County has a large stray cat population, so it was the hope of the Society that this clinic could tackle some of those strays. It was a very successful venture that they anticipate will occur in 2016 as well.
The Society would like to stress the importance of spay/neutering cats and dogs in an effort to avoid unwanted litters which could ultimately lead to dumped animals, disease, neglect and abuse. The Society provides assistance to those that qualify financially for spay/neuter assistance.
