JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – A benefit revved up support this weekend to bring a low cost spay-neuter clinic to Jonesboro.

The local Harley Davidson store hosted a car and bike show Saturday, with part of the proceeds going to NAFA, or Northeast Arkansans for Animals.

NAFA, in turn, set up several fun activities for kids and their four-legged friends.

Director Wannda Turner says the event helps her group move closer to its goal of getting a clinic to bring down the overpopulation of animals.

"If we can get that started, we can save thousands and thousands of lives," Turner said. "That's the biggest goal we can have. I'm hoping that next year I can stand here and tell you that we've saved the lives of 10,000 dogs, and I don't think that's going to be a problem."

Turner says NAFA is now about $4,000 from its goal. The group still needs to buy more medical supplies and equipment and cover the cost of constructing this new clinic.

The group is striving to begin offering spay-neuter procedures at a reduced rate by the New Year.
