"Santa Rosa County has a pet population problem and the best way to control this is to have your pet spayed or neutered," said Brad Baker, public safety director. "Animal Services encourages the public to be part of the solution; having your pet altered helps bring down our pet overpopulation problem and stops most pets from roaming. Fix your pets, fix your fences, fix the problem!"
Animals must be at least four months of age and weigh at least four pounds. This service is not available for feral cats at this time. For more information and an application for the grant for Santa Rosa County residents, visit www.PensacolaHumane.org.
