Low cost spay neuter in Toledo, Ohio

Cat overpopulation is an enormous problem in the Toledo area. That's why a local organization is hoping to fix more than 1,000 cats in one of the biggest problem spots.
Humane Ohio is a low cost spay neuter clinic that fixes dozens of cats and dogs every day. Right now, they have a special program for cats from the city's east side. If you live in the 43605 zip code, you can save yourself a lot of money and prevent unwanted litters at the same time.
Cat overpopulation is a growing problem in the Toledo area. "A female cat can have multiple litters every year and when you think about those kittens go on in five or six months to have litters of their own. The cat population grows so quickly and there just aren't enough homes for all these cats," says Dr. Laura Mather.
The east side is home to one of the biggest stray cat populations in the city. "The reason we are focusing this grant money on the 43605 zip code is because we felt like we could make an immediate impact in that neighborhood if we went into one concentrated area and fixed 14-hundred cats," says Jill Borkowski of Humane Ohio.
The grant money allows the low cost spay neuter clinic to fix cats in the 43605 zip code at a low cost and in some cases no cost. And the help doesn't end there. There's even a free ride to the clinic for cats from the east side throughout the month of December. "We go to the East Toledo Family Center and we'll pick the cats up. We bring them back here to the clinic, do the surgery, they will spend the night with us and then we return them the next morning to them," says Lisa Hochrade of Humane Ohio. Starr Lucius has taken advantage of Humane Ohio's low cost spay neuter clinic. She feeds a number of stray cats in her east side neighborhood.
The free transports from the east Toledo family center will also be offered again early next year. Call Humane Ohio to schedule a spot on the van. The number is (419) 266-5607 or visit the Humane Ohio website.
