Local organizations participate in World Spay Day

Thanks to Mountaineer Spay and Neuter Assistance Program and Monongalia County Humane Society, hundreds of area cats are on their way to being spayed and neutered.

The area organizations participated in World Spay Day on Tuesday.

M-SNAP set up outside of ReTails in Morgantown Mall and offered 200 vouchers for cats owned by Mon County residents to be spayed or neutered. Since 2008, the nonprofit has issued more than 12,000 such vouchers.

Members of M-SNAP also baked cookies and candies, which they delivered Tuesday to partnering vets to thank them for their efforts.

The Monongalia County Humane Society will fund the spaying and neutering of 150 stray or feral cats during its Spring Fix-A-Feral Program that begins Sunday. Ruth Ann Shinn, MCHS president, said the vouchers also include the cost of a rabies shot. And the Humane Society will loan humane traps on a short-term basis.
