JONESBORO -- Having your pet spayed and neutered can be effective for controlling the animal population, but it can also be expensive. The Northeast Arkansans for Animals brought in a special mobile unit from Little Rock to provide services to folks who can't afford their pet's surgery.
"There are way to many animals. The over population in the South is drastic," said Tuner, "Every day 10,000 people are born and at the same time, 70,000 puppies and kittens like this are born as well. That means each individual has to constantly own 42 animals to keep up with the population."
