Pets in Spayce

The Louisiana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (La-SPCA) does much more than facilitate adoption for our four legged friends. One of the agency’s responsibilities includes enforcing Chapter 18 Animal Ordinances and the Intact Permit law. That means the group is in charge of making sure that pets are spayed or neutered or permitted.

Going Balls Out to Spay and Neuter in the Upper Ninth

By Lee Matalone

For twenty canines, Balls Out day won’t be as fun as it sounds. On June 12th, Villalobos Rescue Center (VRC), Supporters of the Intact Animal Permit Law (SIAPL) and Ark Animal Hospital will host a MASH-style spay/neuter marathon to service the Upper Ninth Ward neighborhood. Conceived by Lindsay Goldring and Dr. Heather Carleton, the founder of Spay-Neuter Wyoming, Balls Out Day aims to reduce the stray animal population in the 70117 zip code.
