Easton will be the site of the Leavenworth County Humane Society's next low-cost spay/neuter transport pickup, March 15 and 16.

Residents can drop off animals to be spayed or neutered Thursday, March 15, at Easton City Hall, 300 W. Riley 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 16 weeks old.

To register, send email to LvnCoHS@live.com or go to lchsinc.org/spay-neuter-registration to sign up online. Residents without Internet access can call (913) 728-2881 and leave a message to register. Registration closes March 12.

The LCHS spay/neuter program, which rotates to a different city in the county each month, has helped sterilize about 740 pets in about two years, preventing the birth of an estimated 4,300 puppies and kittens in Leavenworth County.
