Getting a pet spayed or neutered is a responsibility every owner needs to take on. Although many owners think it could get costly, an affordable clinic is offering 24 hours of no-income guideline spaying and neutering.
A lot people may shy away from the process, or let it slip away after they bring a dog or cat home, but employees with the Tiffany Dlesk Spay-Neuter Clinic in Marshall County say by taking care of your pet, you're taking care of your community.
Denise Nally, the Director at the Spay-Neuter Clinic said they want to help control the over-population in the tri-state area and the local community.
The over-population of stray animals leads a large number of animals being euthanized in local shelters.
In fact, nearly 1,600 animals had to be put down at the Marshall County Animal Shelter due to illness, lack of space and low adoption rates in 2012.
On February 26, the Tiffany Dlesk Spay-Neuter Clinic is offering 24-hours of spay and neuter surgeries in conjunction with World Spay Day 2013, thanks to the generous help of volunteer veterinarians and technicians.
Nally said with puppy and kitten season approaching, they can help control the population and forgo some of the unwanted litters of puppies and kittens.
The reduced-cost surgeries are open to the general public, but reservations are required.
The clinic only has 100 spots open for the 24-hour period, and you can save yours by calling 304-810-0580.
Remember, by spaying or neutering your pet, you're saving the lives of countless others. Ensure your pet, and many more can live a healthy, happy life.
