      Help keep cat population from spinning out of control

      Estelle is just one of the cats looking for a home at the Little Traverse Bay Humane Society.

      The Little Traverse Bay Humane Society is offering three low-cost spay/neuter clinics to keep the pet population in check.

      Last year's rescue of 46 kittens by Little Traverse Bay Humane Society highlights how quickly a situation can spin out of control.

      Last year alone, Little Traverse Bay Humane Society spayed 268 female cats preventing more than 64,000 kittens from being born. Because one female cat can produce up to 240 kittens over a five-year period, Little Traverse Bay Humane Society is offering three special low-cost spay/neuter clinics this summer for Emmet County residents.

      The clinics will take place on May 29, June 5 and June 19. Female cats can be spayed for just $35 and male cats for $20.

      "Thanks to the generosity of our supporters and grantors, we are able to offset the cost of spay/neuters through this special program. We hope anyone who has a cat or kitten that needs to be fixed takes advantage of one of these clinics this summer," said Little Traverse Bay Humane Society executive director, Deter Racine.
