NCDA&CS Spay/Neuter Program
NCDA&CS to host spay/neuter workshop in Williamston
Focus on implementing spay/neuter programs and educational programs
RALEIGH – Starting and expanding spay/neuter programs will be the focus of a workshop for animal rescue organizations July 25 at the Sen. Bob Martin Eastern Agricultural Center in Williamston.
State officials and spay/neuter leaders will cover topics such as the laws governing the spay/neuter program, starting and maintaining a spay/neuter program, public/private partnerships and implementing spay/neuter outreach curriculums in schools.
“Spaying and neutering dogs and cats is the only real solution to our pet overpopulation problem,” said Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. “This workshop will help rescue groups and counties who want to start or expand their spay/neuter programs to learn more about the resources available to them.”
Registration is $10 and includes lunch. Register online at www.ncspayneuter.com. Registration is open to anyone in county government, animal shelter or small-animal rescue.
