A local organization is working to help reduce the number of unwanted animals in the area.

Save-A-Pet is launching a spay and neuter campaign, targeted at pet owners. The campaign is called "millions of sweet faces and not enough places."

The organization is trying to decrease the number of animals euthanized here in Houston County.

Averages of 8 to 10 animals are put down at the Dothan Animal Shelter every day

Barbie Nowel with Save-A-Pet said, "Our goal is to educate people in the community about the need to spay and neuters were launching an awareness campaign we've got billboards going up and we're putting counter cards in all the vets offices and any business that will."

You should start seeing those billboards around town in Dothan as early as this week.

    I think this is wonderful - but until some of the local vets and organizations get on board and offer spaying and neutering at a reduced cost - I do not see the problem being eliminated. The current cost to spay a cat is a minimum of $100 - not too many people can afford that.

    Will some vets donate their services to spay and neuter pets for owners who cannot afford it? A campaign is all well and great, but if an owner is simply unable to afford the procedure, the purpose is defeated. And yes, there are many pet owners who are able to afford to feed their pet, but may not be able to afford certain areas of care due to life circumstances. If this is really about population control, I'm sure some sacrifices can be made.
