THUNDER BAY -- The Ontario Society for the Prevention of cruelty to Animals has expressed interest in setting up a low cost spay and neuter clinic in the city.
According to the OSPCA website, thousands of healthy cats and dogs are euthanized annually due to the number of stray, abandoned and unwanted animals.
By having your pet spayed or neutered, that can ultimately help the animal pet population stay at a healthy level.
Chief Executive Officer of the Ontario SPCA Kate MacDonald says they have travelled to Thunder Bay to speak with people who can help them establish a clinic that will help serve people in Thunder Bay and surrounding areas.
MacDonald says so far the numbers of stray pets have dropped in places where the clinics are set up.
MacDonald adds that they also have a strategy in place for First Nation communities, where they can bring their mobile spay and neuter clinic on site, to assist and curb the problem.
