Operation Spay Bay’s mission is to provide affordable spaying and neutering services to prevent population growth and unnecessary euthanizations along with low cost veterinary services. They also assist in helping local rescues locate homes for animals.

“Our mission is to ensure all pets are spayed and neutered and healthy so they do not spread disease within the community,” said Cheryl Murphy, Development Director for Operation Spay Bay.

Pre-registration for he vaccine clinic is required and can be done here. All pets must be contained on a leash or in a crate.

So far 150 people have registered to vaccinate their animals, but Murphy said the program is prepared to fit as many people as possible within the window.

The cost for the dog vaccination package is $25, and cat vaccination packages are $20.

Animals shown in the segments like Rex, Patchouli and Jermaine can be adopted by calling 850-866-6840.

WMBB News 13 will also be hosting an Adopt-a-thon at Bay County Animal Control on June 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In addition to help clearing the shelter by taking home a furry best friend, you can help by purchasing items for Animal Control and Operation Spay Bay or by making a monetary donation.
