Walmart stores set pet adoption challenge – WOWK 13News

Shoppers at the Walmart in Quincy had an opportunity to sign their pets up to be spayed or neutered at a reduced cost Saturday.

A manager at the store invited the Kanawha County Spay and Neuter Task Force to educate customers about the benefits of having their pets fixed.

It is all part of an initiative generated by the store to reduce the number of pets put to sleep annually at local shelters due to pet overpopulation.

The store has also set a goal to help at least seven homeless pets find new homes over the next year. They have challenged other Walmarts in the area to do the same.

Managers at the Quincy Walmart are planning to host adoption events at their location in the weeks ahead.

For information about low cost spay and neuter options, call the Kanawha County Spay and Neuter Task Force at 304-982-0086 or 304-415-0096.
