EUGENE, Ore. (KMTR) -- With drastic cutbacks looming over Lane County Animal Services, a local non-profit animal clinic says it's important now more than ever to spay/neuter pets.
Willamette Animal Guild,(WAG) completed its 20,000th sterilization surgery Monday morning.
The group estimates it has prevented more than 100,000 unwanted animal births. As a result, WAG says dogs and cats live healthier, happier lives and people have fewer stray and feral animals to deal with.
“We have a lot of people in this community who spay and neuter animals all the time that aren't theirs,” says Rae Wilson of WAG. “We have a feral program here. People bring in feral cats every day.”
While WAG targets its services to low-income people, there are no financial requirements to use its services.
