ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany animal advocacy group is encouraging people around Albany to spay or neuter animals.

PACK held a public meeting at the community police center on Dawson road to raise awareness of the problems caused by animal overpopulation and to inform people inexpensive ways to spay and neuter pets.

The humane society offers a program to do the surgery free and some vets offer reduced prices.

"With these programs we can make it more affordable for people who have more limited income and there are people who want to do the right thing but just can't afford the high cost," Said Lauri Jenkins with Pack- an animal rights group.

PACK also hopes that Alban will have a no-kill shelter one day. For low-cost spay and neuter information call Spay Georgia at 770-662-4479.
