DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - So may cats, so little time.
Saturday, June 29, the Humane Society of Greater Dayton will attempt to break a record by spaying or neutering 255 cats in just 24 hours.
During that time, the Humane Society is offering spay/neuter surgeries along with a microchip for just $10 per cat. Although the event was opened to both male and female cats, the few remaining spots available are for male cats only.
"Cat overpopulation is a major concern in the Dayton area," said Brian Weltge, president and CEO of the Humane Society of Greater Dayton. "With roughly 85,000 cats roaming the streets we want to do everything we can to end overpopulation in a safe and humane way. This is why it is so important to get your cats spayed/neutered."
You do not have to be a resident of Montgomery County to attend. To register, stop by the Humane Society of Greater Dayton at 1661 Nicholas Road by 6 p.m. Friday, June 28. You must prepay and pre-register for the event.
The most cats ever spayed/neutered in a 24-hour window by the Humane Society is 209 cats in 2011.
