A local veterinary clinic is working to help control the pet population.
This week, Flanary Vet Clinic in Paducah is holding a Spay and Neuter-thon.
They're spaying or neutering 100 pre-chosen pets for free. All of the pets chosen are either rescue or foster pets looking for a forever home.
"In Western Kentucky, as well as many other places all over the United States, we all know the effects of pet overpopulation. So we are trying to make a little dent in western Kentucky's efforts here today," said Lanita Flanary of Flanary Vet Clinic.
All month the veterinary clinic will also be offering spay and neuter procedures at a 10% discount.
