We are proud to announce that we will be hosting our first low-cost spay and neuter clinic for dogs thanks to a grant from the ASPCA and Five Star Subaru. The clinic will be a two-day event on Thursday, October 20th and Friday, October 21st. Folks interested in having their dog altered during the clinic must ensure that they meet the income requirements below, AND that their dog meets the requirements for them as well.
Each dog will receive: spay/neuter, microchip, core vaccines (DHPP and rabies) if/as needed, a Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccine, treatment for worms and fleas, testing for heartworm and Lyme disease, nail trim, ear clean, and an e-collar to go home with at a cost of $100/dog. Please note that the limit is one dog per person due to the high demand for these services.
To qualify for this clinic, you must meet the following financial guidelines:
|Family Size||Maximum Yearly Income|
To qualify for the clinic, your dog must:

- Have no existing medical conditions or pre-existing medical conditions that create an increased anesthetic risk*.
