TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) – Pet overpopulation is a growing problem in communities across the country. Northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan are no exception. There’s a special program aimed at changing that in both Lucas and Wood Counties.
It’s called the Big Fix, and it’s been a big success. Laura Simmons-Wark is the Executive Director of Humane Ohio, the clinic that performs the surgeries.
“We see so many unwanted litters of puppies being born in our community, and that means shelters like Lucas County Canine Care and Control and the Wood County dog shelter are filling up quickly with unwanted dogs. Spay/neuter surgery is the solution to that,” Simmons-Wark said.
