Bay County Commissioners made a decision this morning on the next step with Operation Spay Bay. The organization wants to establish a facility where they can spay and neuter dogs and cats for a low price to help in the community.
This morning, they won a big battle, getting approved for a building owned by the county.
Several Bay County residents stood up in support of the effort saying that the facility was needed to help control the number of feral cats in the area. While the organization asked for a ten year lease, Bay County commissioners ultimately agreed to only one year costing the organization $1.
Operation Spay Bay is working to raise funds and hopes to be up and running by this time next year. They need to raise $90,000 and currently have $6,000.
