Humane Society of the Flint Hills holds World Spay Day event in partnership with Kansas State Veterinary Department and Emporia Street Cats Club

To commemorate World Spay Day, celebrated Tuesday, the Humane Society of the Flint Hills teamed up with a pair of organizations to help spay and neuter animals both in the Emporia Animal Shelter and the community at large.

The World Spay Day celebration was a private event that saw the Humane Society team up with the Kansas State Veterinary Department and the Emporia Street Cats Club. The event was a combination spay and neuter and trap, neuter and release (TNR) event that included both shelter pets and stray animals.

Humane Society Director Stephanie Achille Spoke with KVOE News and says the event is a “two birds one stone” approach to keeping the local pet population “under control.”

Achille says events such as Tuesday’s are commonplace across the country and she is pleased the Humane Society has formulated partnerships with other agencies such as K-State and Street Cats Club in order to bring an event such as this to the local community.

Tuesday’s event is just a precursor to activities coming to the local community courtesy of the Humane Society. On Mar. 19 the Humane Society will be hosting its first Pet-Palooza at the Lyon County Fairgrounds Anderson Building.

The event will begin at noon and is open to the public. Pets are welcome so long as all of their vaccinations are up-to-date. Additional details will be announced closer to the date.
