Prevent A Litter

The Adair County Humane Society and vet clinics are participating in the “Prevent a Litter” program throughout March to promote responsible pet ownership and spay and neuter programs to reduce the number of homeless animals.

Adair County Humane Society Board Member Bridget Thomas,says this is the fourth year the shelter has participated in the program. She said during late February the shelter hands out certificates to reduce the cost of getting a pet spayed or neutered. The money for the certificates comes from grants and donations and not the shelter funds, Thomas said. Thomas said in addition to the certificate, participating vet clinics reduce their spay and neuter rates during March. Prevent a Litter occurs during March because it is when the animals start looking for mates.
