Dogs and cats adopted by Georgia residents from the Warner Robins Animal Shelter are eligible for free spay or neutering services, thanks to a $3,000 grant from the Georgia Department of Agriculture.
The shelter has partnered with veterinarian Vernard Hodges at Critter Fixer Veterinary Hospital, 102 Starlight Ave. in Bonaire, to provide the services, according to a Warner Robins police news release.
Warner Robins Animal Control, which is under the police department, operates the shelter at 208 Stalnaker Ave., Warner Robins.
The grant restricts award of the free service to residents of Georgia.
The shelter is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., as well as the third Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The adoption fee is $20, with city ordinances requiring that owners provide for a rabies shot and spay or neutering of adopted animals. The grant is designed to encourage adoptions.
