North Alabama Spay Neuter Clinic
A 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization
Let’s Get Our Spay/Neuter Clinic REOPENED!
Since circumstances led to our clinic closing last May, we have been working to reopen. During the 28 months we were open, we “fixed” over 8,000 dogs and cats, and our efforts helped lower our city’s euthanasia rate. Every animal spayed/neutered meant fewer unwanted litters of puppies and kittens.
Providing high quality, low-cost spay neuter surgeries is the only function of our clinic. Low-income families can have their pets fixed affordably. Often this is the first health care the animal has ever had.
The benefits of having pets fixed are indisputable – pregnancy/heat cycles and reproductive cancers are prevented, animals are less likely to roam and fight, animals’ overall health is improved, and they live longer. The more we can prevent animal overpopulation, the happier and healthier our pets are, and tax costs for city shelter euthanasia rates go down. The whole community benefits!
So let’s get our spay/neuter clinic reopened! We have a lot going for us – a great facility, all necessary surgical equipment, and a community eager for us to reopen!
It just takes 4 simple steps:
We must find a skilled veterinarian dedicated to the spay/neuter cause. Our new veterinarian will train at the Humane Alliance in Asheville, NC, to learn more about high volume, high quality spay/neuter techniques. As practice owner, our new vet will have a meaningful opportunity to continue the work of our clinic.
We will need a “premise permit” issued by the Alabama State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners. The ASBVME will need to approve our vet’s practice license and then grant a permit for reopening the clinic. The clinic is in the process of adjusting its corporate structure in order to meet compliance requirements of the state board.
We will hire staff and recruit volunteers to handle daily operations under supervision of our vet.
We will tell all of North Alabama! We’ll launch a huge PR campaign and let the public know we’re open again and ready to start booking appointments.
