Sep. 1—The Whitfield County Animal Shelter is offering a $20 spay and neuter service.

To qualify, you must provide proof of Whitfield County residency, a photo ID and $20 cash. No more than one animal per household. The shelter is at 156 Gillespie Drive in Dalton and is open from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

County law requires dog and cat owners to have their pets spayed or neutered if they are six months old or older or to obtain a breeder's license from the state Department of Agriculture. Animals are also exempt from the spay/neuter requirement if the owner provides a letter from a veterinarian saying the animal has a medical condition that will not allow the surgery.
