With the onset of the feline breeding season, Pinellas County Animal Services urges citizens to spay or neuter their cats. In Pinellas County, unwanted cats represent the majority of the animal overpopulation problem, and, unfortunately, far more kittens and cats are turned in to local shelters than can be placed for adoption. Pinellas County Animal Services offers low-cost spaying and neutering and, for those who qualify, free feline spaying. Call (727) 586-3591.
