This Presidents Day. UK students

Students who are unsure of what

baswamy have to say and ask their
own questions at the Cats Den‘s. “A

Each year, the Lexington Humane Society cares for more than 1 1,000 homeless, abandoned animals and puts them up for adoption. Programs such as Spay's the Way,
which provides discounted or free spaying and neutering to low-income pet owners, are meant to reduce the number of homeless animals.

Program gives cheap for for pet expenses

By Robin Pircher

news@kykernel. com

Students may find it hard to say “no"
to a furry companion. but many are un—
aware of the mounting costs and respon-
sibilities that come with a pet.

Pet owners have the chance to get
one important service — spaying or neu—
tering — for a low cost through the Lex-
ington Humane Society‘s Spay‘s the
Way program.

“Many people aren‘t aware the re-
sources are out there. or of the impor-
tance of spaying or neutering their ani-
mals." said Kristin Palmgreen. manager
of special projects and innovations at the
Lexington Humane Society.

A normal spaying or neutering for a
cat or dog can cost several hundred dol-
lars after shots and other examinations.
Palmgreen said. and the purpose of

Spay s the Way is to help pet owners
who cannot afford the full cost.

Luther James. veterinarian and own—
er of Scott County Animal Clinic. has
seen many student pet owners and said
he understands the financial drain it can
be on a college student's pocket.

“To spay or neuter can cost you any-
where between $50 to $300. but it de—
pends on the location. if you are in a big
city. it’s going to cost more than if you
were here." James said. “l‘m just glad
we have the amount of first-time owners
that get their pet the surgery and under~
stand how important it is."

Spay‘s the Way also includes rabies
vaccinations and city pet licensing.
Palmgreen said. The program is offered
throughout the year. but includes more
clinics and drawings for free gifts during

More than 11,000 homeless.
abandoned and unwanted animals
are brought to the Lexington Hu-
mane Society each year. Palm-
green said. The organization has
taken efforts to reduce these num—
bers by spaying or neutering every
adopted pet and offering a low-
cost option for current pet owners.

The overpopulation in Lexing—
ton reflects a nationwide trend.

with live to six million dogs or
cats entering into shelters each
year. Palmgreen said.

Spaying or neutering provides
many health benefits. Palmgreen
said. Pets who do not have the pro»
cedure can express territorial be-
havior. aggression and personality
changes. It l‘emalc pets are not
spayed. the animals can experience
problems with infection during
heat cycles and can develop prob—
lems with their reproductive organs
as well as complications from
pregnancy. Neutering a pet can
also reduce the chance of cancer
and prolong the animal's life by
two or three years. Palmgreen said.

“I‘ve had mariy compliments
and happy clients alter the surgery.
They were just happy to get it
done and not have to worry." said
James. the veterinarian.

The surgery isn‘t complicated
and takes one to two hours on av-
erage. James said. Alter the proce-
