“In the last year and a half, we’ve launched our mobile spay neuter unit for this community. It’s the first nonprofit spay neuter program. We are so excited to announced we did over 3,000 animals in the first calendar year, and this year our goal is 4,000 pets,” said Kathy Bice with the Aggieland Humane Society.

The mobile spay and neuter unit operates four days a week.
