The last Tuesday in February is celebrated as World Spay Day. The Tennessee House of Representatives has passed a State Resolution making February 23rd, 2016 Spay Day across our state with a goal of encouraging more spay/neuter of pets belonging to Tennessee residents. Mayor Dale Perdue signed a proclamation on February 19th at 3:30 pm at the Scott County Office Building to make February 23d "Spay Day" in Scott County, encouraging pet owners to fix their cats and dogs.
Scott County is one of the many in Tennessee without animal control or a shelter so prevention of unwanted litters remains our best defense against strays and abandoned animals. For the Love of Paws, (FTLOP) reminds everyone that friends don't let friends have unwanted litters and thanks all the Scott County pet owners that have made the life-saving decision to fix their pets, over 2,650 cats and dogs "fixed" so far.
If you would like more information about our low cost spay neuter programs or to schedule an appointment to spay/neuter your pet, please call For the Love of Paws at 423 223-8241.
Thank you to all the folks in Scott County who made the decision to be responsible pet owners and take advantage of this amazing program!
