Montgomery County Animal Services (“MCAS”) recently partnered with BISSELL Pet Foundation to host and fund a
five‐day free public spay/neuter clinic for owned dogs in Montgomery County. The clinic was held to help alleviate
shelter overcrowding by preventing unwanted litter. From Sunday, November 6th through Thursday, November
10th almost 270 dogs were spayed or neutered at the event. The dogs also received free-of-charge age‐appropriate
vaccinations, including rabies, a microchip, a heartworm test, and an e‐collar.
“We are excited to have partnered again with the BISSELL Pet Foundation. This time to provide a much-needed
public spay/neuter event to the dogs of Montgomery County” said Aaron Johnson, MCAS Director. “MCAS, as well
as most of our area shelters, is overcrowded. One of the reasons for this overcrowding is the limited access to
low/no cost public spay/neuter services. It is through collaborative events such as this, however, that we can save
animal lives in our community! We hope to have opportunities to schedule additional free public spay/neuter
clinics in 2023. ”
“With shelters and rescues at capacity, the need for spay/neuter is critical. Proactive pet sterilization procedures
address the root cause of animal overpopulation by preventing unwanted births,” said Cathy BISSELL, founder of
BISSELL Pet Foundation. “We are committed to impacting the lives of both homeless and owned pets in
Montgomery County by making spay/neuter services more accessible to the community.”
Aaron Johnson also added, “We look forward to partnering with the BISSELL Pet Foundation for another successful
fee‐waived “Empty the Shelters” adoption event in December. Details on that event will be released soon.”
