Warren County Animal Control director Km Pettrey hopes to put an end to some unwanted litters of puppies and kittens. Pettrey has proposed starting a spay and neuter program to members of the county’s Health and Welfare Committee.Pettrey wants all animals adopted from Animal Control to be spayed or neutered before being taken to their new home.Pettrey said the price of the adoptions with spay or neuter costs could be figured two ways: 1) have a set fee for all animals of $65, or 2) since spaying or neutering dogs is more costly than cats, dog adoptions could be $80 and cats $50.Members of the committee were receptive to the idea. Commissioner Blaine Wilcher said, “Right now, you know more than likely it will reproduce and you will most likely get more cats and dogs in the future.
