To Prevent Strays
Low-price Spay Program Starts
A low-cost neutering and spay
P ing program was started this week
to try to eliminate the population
of stray dogs and cats in Hoke
County in the near future.
Sheryl McGinnis said Monday
the Hoke County-Raeford
Humane Society had been formed
and associated with the national
Friends of Animals, based in New
The low-cost program is open to
Q any pet owner, regardless of his or
her level of income.
Mrs. McGinnis said the costs are
$15 for spaying a female cat, $30
for spaying a female dog, $10 for
neutering a male cat, and $18 for
neutering a male dog.
The Friends of Animals pays the
difference between what the pet
owner pays and what the regular
fee of the veterinarian is.
She added that the Humane
a Society would subsidize operations
^ for pets of low-income owners who
cannot afford the low prices of the
program. They would be required
to show evidence they can't pay
even the reduced price.
Mrs. McGinnis also said that the
FoA won't pay for spaying or
neutering of animals of people
who plan to have their pets de
^ The procedure works like this,
w she explained.
The pet owner obtains a registra
tion form by mail by writing Mrs.
McGinnis, Hoke County-Raeford
Humane Society, Rt. 4, Box 410C,
Raeford, 28376; or by coming to
the office at 112 S. Main St., bet
ween 8 and 9 a.m. Mondays
through Fridays. After filling out
the form, the pet owner returns it
to Mrs. McGinnis with payment
for the desired spaying or neuter
? ing. In turn the pet owner is given a
Friends of Animals certificate.
Then the pet owner gives the cer
tificate to the veterinarian, and the
operation is performed.
Pet owners interested also can
reach Mrs. McGinnis by telephone
at home (875-3283) or office
(875-8861). If no one is at the
home when the call is made, the
caller will be answered by a recor
A ding, and may leave his or her
name and telephone number so the
call can be returned.
Mrs. McGinnis and Dr. Russell
Tate, owner of Raeford Animal
Clinic at College Drive and Harris
Avenue (near the intersection of
US 401 South Bypass) is the only
veterinarian in this area (including
Cumberland County) who is par
ticipating in the new program so

Mrs. McGinnis said the local
Humane Society is trying to raise
money for the Friends of Animals
for the county contribution and
also to help pay for a proposed
new Hoke County animal shelter
or for improvements to the present
pound. The fundraising will be
done by bake sales and sales of
educational materials and novelties
(like the $1 key ring), as well as
receiving donations and benefac
tors. She said volunteers will be
sought to help with the special
events, such as the bake sales.
Mrs. McGinnis also said that
eventually she hopes to get to the
schools to give the children infor
mation about humane treatment of
animals. The society also will
spread the word through the public
about the importance of having
pets vaccinated against rabies par
ticularly, and other contagious
The Humane Society is
nonmembership, she said, since
the primary purpose at present is
to get people to have their pets
spayed and neutered to prevent
production of stray animals.
The membership of the Humane
Society consists of Mrs. McGinnis,
her husband, John, and her father,
Jack Letzgus, who are listed as the
directors of the nonprofit Humane
Society's charter or incorporation
issued by the state.
She said the society also is listed
officially by the U.S. Internal
Revenue Service, so that all dona
tions are tax-deductible.
