Warner Robins City Council members voted to pass an ordinance Monday that they hope will allow more animals to be adopted.
In the past, any animal that was adopted from a shelter needed to be spayed or neutered before going home with their new owner.
Warner Robins Councilman Paul Shealy says the new ordinance allows people who adopt to spay or neuter their pet on their own, as long as it's done within the first 30 days.
"With this ordinance the people can come and adopt the animal and they can have it spayed and neutered and they have to within a certain period of time and they can have it done by their own personal or favorite veterinarian and that's the difference."
Warner Robins City Council also voted on another kind of animal ordinance.
Farm animals will now be kept right near Warner Robins High School, at the former Flint Electric ballpark.
Councilman Shealy says once the animals get big, they will be transferred to the Northside farm.
"This is not going to be a smelly situation where roosters are crowing at 5 o'clock in the morning, it just gives them a little area where they can start to keep the animals with the farm program at Warner Robins High School for the students."
Warner Robins, Northside, and Houston County High Schools all have farm programs available to their students.
