As of Friday, Cache Humane Society has performed more than 10,000 spay and neuter surgeries since 2009 at its Logan shelter.
“To put this into perspective, in the first year we only did 15 surgeries; three years ago we did our 5,000th and in just three years this figure has doubled,” said Cath Manrique, Cache Humane’s fundraising and volunteer coordinator.
Roland Bringhurst, Cache Humane’s executive director, said that these procedures are essential to keeping Cache Humane running smoothly because they keep the number of animals entering shelters down.
“We want to get the spay and neuter message out there, it is the only way to prevent homeless animals,” Bringhurst said.
Cache Humane became a no kill shelter in 2014, which Manrique attributes to the increased number of spay/neuter surgeries.
“We will continue to perform low cost spay and neuter surgeries and If more people continue to bring pets in to get neutered, together we can save them all,” said Manrique.
