The Animal Mission is teaming up with the city of Columbia to include spay and neuter vouchers in 92,000 of the city's water bills this month.

Marli Drum, a spokesperson for the Animal Mission, says they want pet owners to take advantage of the program so less animals repopulate and fill up shelters.

"What we're trying to do is prevent so many animals from ever having to come here because they were never born in the first place," Drum says.  "We see this as a proactive and positive way we can affect our community," she says.

The vouchers can be redeemed at participating Richland County veterinarian's offices and at The Humane Society.  Pet owners will still have to pay between $5 and $15 for the procedure by using the vouchers which are good until May 31.
