GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -
People living in parts of Greenville County will be able to take advantage of a free program to spay and neuter their cats.
It may be coming at a perfect time, as shelters say they're seeing an influx of animals in need.
The free special is for the 800 owned cats in the 29609 zip code and is paid for by a grant through PetSmart.
Greenville County Animal Care is working to get grants for other zip codes, but right now it's targeted towards 29609 because they say it one of the areas from where they see a lot of pet population problems and intake.
For pet owners who do not live in that zip code, the clinic offers other low-cost spay and neuter options. Click here for more information.
Additionally, the county shelter has a current special for adult cats and dogs in need of a home. They said the older pets are among the harder ones to adopt, so they're offering a Flurry of Furries special for select adult dogs and cats through January.
The special adoption fee is $20 with the purchase of a leash and collar, heartworm preventative and identification tag. Click here for more information on how to adopt from Greenville County Animal Care.
The county shelter is located at 328 Furman Hall Road in Greenville and is open to the public Monday through Friday from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
