Free Sterilization for Pit Bulls and Pit Mixes Offered
Flagler County, in partnership with the Flagler Humane Society, is offering free sterilizations, microchips, and rabies vaccinations for pit bull and pit bull mix dogs in Flagler County, thanks to an $83,000 Targeted Spay/Neuter Grant from PetSmart Charities.
The Flagler Humane Society will begin offering the free spay/neuter services on January 7, 2013. Interested Flagler County residents should contact FHS at 386.445.1814.
“The County is always eager to partner obtaining funding which benefits our community and this grant will assist in addressing pet overpopulation,” said Nate McLaughlin, Flagler County Commission Chair.
Pit bulls and pit mixes make up approximately 60 percent of the dogs housed at Flagler Humane Society’s shelter even though they represent less than 10 percent of total dogs in the county. According to Diane Voigt, FHS Board President, pits are a problem because they are difficult to place in homes. “This is a really good program and one that will end when the grant monies run out,” says Voigt. “We really want to see pet owners in Flagler take advantage of these free spay/neuter surgeries.”
FHS will continue to offer subsidized spay/neuters, funded through public donations, to Flagler County residents who own other types of dogs and/or cats.
