Pet Pantry Hands Out Food Along With Spay/Neuter Vouchers
A joint event by the Leon County Humane Society and Be The Solution provided free pet food along with spay and neuter vouchers on Saturday, Aug. 28. The happening took place in front of Leon County's Community Center and Leroy Collins Public Library branch at the corner of North Monroe and Fred George Road. There was free pet food and kitty litter galore, due to a recent donation from the Chewy company. The Humane Society's Katie Logue said business was booming.
"I love to see people drive up with their dogs in the passenger seat. It's been good!" she exclaimed.
Not so good, however, is the fact so many pets keep producing more pets that may never find forever homes.
"You come out here with an unspayed dog to pick up some pet food and then in a couple of months, you come out with 9 puppies and an unspayed mom. But now you also have that need and they need homes and let's face it; if we don't spay and neuter there will never be enough homes for the number of animals that will come from that."
Logue hoped that will start changing with the ongoing efforts of Be The Solution and the newly opened Leon County Spay and Neuter Foundation.
