Guam - Guam Animals In Need has partnered with village mayors and island vets to re-implement the Successful Animal Sterilization Program. Mayors have been given coupons for residents to take to local vets to have their pets spay and neutered for a credit of $25.
GAIN Vice-President Corinne Lopez says the project helps reduce the number of animals that must be put down, telling KUAM News, "Over 4,000 animals have to be put down for various reasons sometimes they are very sick, sometimes they are aggressive, sometimes there is just no home so it's a sad thing to put their lives to an end even if its in a humane way."
The program will officially begin on Monday in the villages of Santa Rita, Chalan Pago and Yigo.
