The World Animal Foundation of Vermilion, along with Lorain-based Life Savers Spay and Neuter Service, are combining resources to help reduce the stray animal population.
Both organizations say that spaying or neutering will reduce the number of unwanted pets euthanized, while easing the burden on animal wardens and municipalities to control a large volume of stray animals.
The Foundation has decided to close its adoption center, which has been open for a little more than a decade, and focus its local activities on a low-cost spay-and-neuter service.
The spay-and-neuter program is scheduled to begin in January. Animals will be dropped off at the Foundation, 5725 Liberty Ave., then transported to a Regional Clinic in the Toledo area and returned the next day for pick-up.
