Free Spaying Or Neutering Of Pit Bulls Owned By Town Residents
In recognition of October as Pit Bull Awareness Month, the Town of Huntington is partnering with the League for Animal Protection to offer free spaying or neutering of pit bulls and pit bull mixes owned by Town residents. “The Town and the League have worked together at our shelter to increase awareness of the adoptability of pit bulls as pets and to work with the pit bull and pit bull mixes at the shelter to make them more adoptable,” Huntington Supervisor Frank P. Petrone said. “This one-month program is a logical extension of that effort, encouraging Huntington residents to be responsible pet owners by having their pets spayed or neutered to help reduce the unwanted pet population.”
Persons wishing to take advantage of the program should visit the Town Animal Shelter on Deposit Road in East Northport and bring proof of residency. They will be given a voucher that they can take to a participating veterinarian, who will perform the procedure. For more information, contact the shelter at 631-754-8722.
