Pulaski County to offer free spay/neuter services

A voluntary 2016 tax on Pulaski County residents raised around $45,000 for the spay/neuter fund – $10,000 more than expected. Some of these funds will be put toward the county's first spay/neuter event, to be held Nov. 30 at the Little Rock Animal Village.

Here's how it works: You pay a $10 deposit to have your pet spayed or neutered. The cost of the surgery, a procedure that can run upwards of $400 at private clinics, will be covered by the county. On the day of the pet's operation, you'll have to show proof of vaccination to get your deposit back. Without proof of vaccination, the $10 will be spent on a mandatory rabies shot.

If you're interested, you must register in person at Arkansans for Animals. You'll have to bring proof that you live in Pulaski County (a utility bill or property tax receipt will work). And don't forget the $10 for the refundable deposit.

County Judge Barry Hyde explained what would be done with what remained of the leftover cash:
"With the remaining funds, we will assist city shelters with spaying and neutering their adoptable pets. Through our partnership with Arkansans for Animals and the use of their mobile unit, we will provide subsidized spay/neuter services to residents in the unincorporated areas of the county."
