Town of Huntington residents can have their pit bulls or pit bull mixes spayed or neutered for free under a program offered by the town and the League for Animal Protection.
Residents who want to participate in the month-long offer should visit the Town Animal Shelter on Deposit Road in East Northport and bring proof of residency. They will be given a voucher that they can take to a participating veterinarian, who will perform the procedure.
“The Town and the League have worked together at our shelter to increase awareness of the adoptability of pit bulls as pets and to work with the pit bull and pit bull mixes at the shelter to make them more adoptable,” Huntington Supervisor Frank P. Petrone said. “This one-month program is a logical extension of that effort, encouraging Huntington residents to be responsible pet owners by having their pets spayed or neutered to help reduce the unwanted pet population.”
