PAWS Humane in Columbus used national Spay Day to discuss the neutering and spaying of cats and dogs.
Frances Steed, supervisor of the Columbus Animal and Control Center, said that about 20 animals per day are euthanized there.
"I'm tired of looking at the faces of these animals then having to put them down," she said.
Animal overpopulation is a big problem here. About 10,000 animals come to the control center each year.
