Pittsboro, NC - The Chatham County Board of Commissioners passed a resolution designating February 2015 as Spay/Neuter Awareness Month. The resolution, which was adopted January 20th, recognizes the challenges associated with pet overpopulation, stating that “humane societies and animal shelters have to put down millions of cat, dogs, rabbits and other animals each year, many of whom are healthy and adoptable, due to a lack of critical resources and public awareness.”

The resolution also points out the important role of spaying and neutering pets in reducing this burden. Chatham County Animal Services has teamed with local veterinarians and animal rescue organizations to advocate for the spaying and neutering of pets and feral cats. Chatham County hosts a number of spay/neuter events and offers a low-cost spay and neuter voucher to residents who qualify. To request more information on qualifications for each household, please visit or call 919-542-7203.
