Pitching in for PALS

At a Hays County Prevent a Litter (PALS) clinic held in January, Veterinarian Mark Rumple spays a cat while PALS “Volunteer of the Year” Willie Blank assists. PALS, its volunteers and sponsors help fund low-cost spay and neuter clinics in an effort to keep the population down among stray animals. PALS officials reported that about 50 cats were spayed and neutered in two clinics last month. (Submitted photo)
