Guam - Since February, Guam Animals In Need's sterilization program has been able to sterilize over a thousand animals. According to co-manager Julie Grady, residents can still take advantage of this program by obtaining a coupon from the mayor's offices. She says since the island has a lot of stray animals, residents should spay or neuter their pets.

"For this past year, it worked really well. We're going to try and continue it. We've developed a coupon system. Residents in the community can pick up a coupon at their mayor's office and the shelter as well. It's $25 for them to spay or neuter their animal. If you're on any time of public assistance, it's free for them," she said.

The clinics involved in this program include Marianas Vet Care, the Animal Medical Clinic, Isla Vet Clinic and Harper's Veterinarian Hospital.
