Original Feb. News Release, now out of date:
Pause for Paws -- FAHS Annouces Low Cost Spay & Neuter Clinic
Florence Area Humane Society and Dr. William Powell, DVM, were excited to reintroduce low cost spay and neuter to our community on Wednesday, February 11, 2004, by altering four dogs and six cats at the Shelter. Florence has been without low cost spay/neuter services since September, 2003, when Coastal Animal Clinic closed their doors.
On Wednesday, February 25, 2004, in honor of Spay Day USA, a national campaign to reduce pet overpopulation, we will hold a "Tom Cat Special" Clinic for male cats only. It will be held at the Florence Area Humane Society's Shelter, 2840 Rhododendron Drive, Florence. Our goal is to alter 40 cats during this clinic. Space is limited so call 997-4277 now to make your appointment.
Future spay and neuter clinics will be held at the Shelter on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month. The cost of surgeries will start at $28 per male cat, $40 per female cat, and $50 per dog. Surgeries must be scheduled and paid for in advance. For more information and if you need financial aid, contact the Florence Area Humane Society at 997-4277.
Spay Day USA was created in 1995 to encourage everyone to help solve the country's severe pet overpopulation problem by having at least one cat or dog spayed or neutered. Since its inception, Spay Day participants have altered more than 835,000 animals. With the help of spay and neuter programs like our "Tom Cat Special", the number of unwanted, unplanned births in our area will decrease.
Please help us be part of the solution by preventing a litter. Have your own pet spayed or neutered. If your pet is already altered, sponsor the spay or neuter of a friend's pet.
