The past year has been one of the worst for pet over-population in the Pikes Peak Region. So much so, that thousands of animals that did not get adopted from the Humane Society were euthanized.
To help combat the problem the humane society is starting a new program to make spaying and neutering more affordable for low income families. "Cost can be a barrier for people getting their animal spayed or neutered. The Humane Society is trying to provide an opportunity for people to be able to get through that barrier," says Humane Society, President and CEO, Jan McHugh-Smith. There is an application process to determine if families qualify reduced cost program.
