Area animal shelter asking for $30k to solve problem


BURGAW, NC (WWAY) — The Pender County Animal Shelter wants to start spaying and neutering the pets it adopts out, but it needs your help.

Shelter Manager Jewel Norton says 40 to 50 percent of adopters do not comply with the shelter’s spaying and neutering requirement.

She says the shelter needs to raise about $30,000 to fund a surgical facility so its vets can just do the procedure in house.
