HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- Some good neighbors in Harrisonburg are working to keep the stray cat and dog population down in the city through spaying and neutering.
That mission is getting help from money raised, in part, by some JMU students. They raised about $300 for THE Shenandoah Valley Spay and Neuter clinic. Those working with the animals said every little bit helps.
"Oh, it's fantastic to be able to help our furry friends that we have and be able to supply it at an affordable rate. Every donation helps, and it really makes the impact that much greater in our community," explained Dan Cavez, the clinic operations coordinator.
Only 10 percent of the animals received by shelters have been spayed or neutered nationwide. The cost of spaying or neutering a pet is less than the cost of raising puppies or kittens for a year.
