Animal over-population is a nation-wide problem, including in the Hopkinsville-Christian County Area.
In an effort to find the solution to the problem, the Christian County Animal Shelter has created a new program called Get Em Done, to spread the word about the importance of spaying and neutering pets, especially ones that get adopted out of the shelter.
Several veterinary clinics are already assisting the animal shelter by performing the procedures on the animals before they get adopted, which costs money and that’s where officials are hoping residents can help out.
Officials will officially kick off the Get Em Done program during the animal shelter’s first annual Bow Wow, which is being touted as a great event where residents can show off their pets they adopted at a shelter or rescue and also make a financial contribution.
The Bow Wow is scheduled to take place Saturday, August 4th at the Trail of Tears Park from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m.
