THUNDER BAY -- The city's animal services is changing the way it does business with potential pet-owners, following approval of the new plan by City Council last night.
The Thunder Bay Animal Services shelter on Alloy Place has been facing overcrowding due to the number of people not spaying and neutering their animals. This has caused shelter officials to rethink their pricing system.
Using the Humane Society's cat giveaway as an example, the Thunder Bay Animal Services have lowered prices for young kittens and puppies by $100, and they've given supervisors the discretion to offer two-for-one deals when there's an over-population at the shelter.
The city's licensing Manager Ron Bourret says the changes are positive for everyone.
The price now ranges from $200 to $220 for cats and dogs of all ages, and pet-owners will also get a $100 voucher for spay or neutering the animal.
Supervisors will also have the option of cutting prices for older dogs or cats who may have medical problems.
