The clinic will run all day, with cats and dogs dropped off in 15 minute intervals between 9am and noon. The RASCAL unit can spay and neuter 30 surgeries plus 20 cat neuters in one day. The clinic also offers a limited number of low-cost vaccinations and flea/heartworm treatment and preventative at an additional fee. Individuals will pick their animals back up between 2pm –9pm.

Spay/neuter is a proven way to reduce pet overpopulation, ensuring that every pet has a family to love them. Consider the fact that in six short years, one female dog and her offspring can give birth to 67,000 puppies. In seven years, one cat and her young can produce 420,000 kittens. In towns and cities that have implemented spay/neuter programs, the Humane Society of the United States has seen the number of companion animals who had to be euthanized decline by 30 to 60 percent—even in those communities where human populations have been steadily increasing.
THIS CLINIC IS NOT A MONEY MAKING VENTURE. We are interested in helping to reduce the homeless pet population and in providing assistance to the members of our community who are responsible pet guardians.
