72 animals were euthanized here at the Montgomery Humane Society Tuesday.

More than 30,000 were euthanized at shelters in Central and South Alabama last year.

Many others were dumped in the country by pet owners who didn't want to take them to shelters.

They struggled to survive without homes.

A new low cost spay and neuter clinic - the Alabama Animal Alliance - opens in less than two weeks in Montgomery near the Goodwill on Atlanta Highway.

It will be the first of its kind in Alabama.

Birmingham and Mobile are already looking into transporting animals here to use the clinic.

This clinic will address the pet overpopulation problem in our region - if you take advantage of it.

A similar clinic in North Carolina led to a 70% decrease in the number of animals euthanized.

One day this week, 67 animals were brought to the shelter in Elmore County.

Each month 230 animals are brought into the Prattville/Autauga County shelter and the shelter can only house 60.

 The non-lethal solution to ending pet overpopulation is now more accessible and affordable right here in Montgomery.
