Linwood will be the site of the Leavenworth County Humane Society's next low-cost spay/neuter transport pickup, Jan. 19 and 20.

Residents can drop off animals to be spayed or neutered Thursday, Jan. 19, at the city of Linwood's maintenance building, next door to city hall at 306 Main St., and the animals will be returned the next day. The transport, conducted in partnership with Heartland SPCA Animal Medical Center, is open to all county residents.

Pet dogs and cats will be sterilized, vaccinated and implanted with tracking microchips and can also receive parasite treatment if needed, for a price of $65 for cats and $95 for dogs. Feral cats can be sterilized, vaccinated and treated for parasites for $25. Cats must weigh at least 3 pounds, and dogs must be at least 18 weeks old.

To register, send email to or go to to sign up online. Residents without Internet access can call (913) 728-2881 and leave a message to register. Registration closes Jan. 16.

The LCHS spay/neuter program, which rotates to a different city each month, has helped sterilize 691 pets in about two years, preventing the birth of an estimated nearly 4,100 puppies and kittens in Leavenworth County.
