KINGWOOD W. Va – The Preston County Commission was given a grant from the West Virginia Department of Agriculture for the spay and neuter program.
The grant was for $5,000. An anonymous donor also contributed $5,000.00 to the program, specifically for cats.
Pet owners are able to have their animals spayed or neutered and shots administered at no cost through the program. There are no income requirements and individuals must be Preston County residents.
“Spaying and neutering is extremely, extremely important. We have way too many puppies, we have way too many kittens and unless we get the population under control, it’s just going to get out of control,” said Anita Berns, Volunteer at the Preston County Animal Shelter.
Appointments can be made with the Preston County animal shelter. (304) 329-3461.
