Q: How can I get assistance with pet care?
A: The Central Spay Neuter and Wellness Clinic in Kernersville focuses on low-cost spay/neuter surgeries and vaccinations.  The Forsyth Humane Society can also assist with spay/neuter procedures and vaccinations and has a pet food pantry. Please check with them to see if you meet the eligibility requirements for their programs. Forsyth County Animal Control also provides assistance with pet food.

Q: Are there any resources for pest control?
