Spay/ Neuter Program Reinstated

Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has ruled that the city of Fayetteville can reopen its low-cost spay and neuter program at the Fayetteville Animal Shelter to the public.
Earlier this year, as reported in the Sept. 3 issue of the Free Weekly, the program was shut down because of a dictate from the state Veterinary Medical Examining Board based on their interpretation of existing legislation.
McDaniel’s interpretation of the law differed from that of the board and thus clears the way for the spay and neuter program to resume.
The program allows low-income residents to have their pets spayed or neutered at the shelter for a minimal fee.
