Operation PetSnip Reaches Milestone Sterilizations
They're saving the lives of cats and dogs in the community by trying to make sure there aren't too many cats and dogs in the community. Operation Petsnip staff have neutered thousands of pets. They're part of the non-profit organization No More Homeless Pets in Alachua County. The clinic at Northwest Sixth Street opened about four years ago. Staff say this month they will have performed 15,000 sterilization surgeries over the years. Staff members say this statistic means Animal Services will have to put down fewer pets.
"In 2012 in February, they had euthanized over 400 animals. This year in 2013 in February, they only euthanized 25 animals. We're excited to say it's working," Sandi Richmond, Executive Director said.
