Pima County supervisors consider costs of spaying and neutering pets

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- A topic at Tuesday's Pima County Board of Supervisors was the cost of spaying and neutering pets.

There was talk that the price would be raised, but the county supervisors may be reconsidering the cost.

"The goal is to spay and neuter as many dogs and cats as we can.  The overpopulation is what leads us to kill 12,000 animals per year at the Pima Animal Care Center.  It's a high number.  It's a disgusting fact," said  Dist. 4 County Supervisor Ray Carroll.

The county supervisors are expected to meet in two weeks to discuss the issue as part of their agenda.
