Determined Spay/Houston opens providing relief to the community
Adopt a Cat is holding a Grand Opening Celebration for their new clinic Spay/Houston after many struggles and road blocks to opening. This is a high quality, low cost spay/neuter clinic for cats, dogs, and rabbits in the Greenspoint area of Houston.
This spay/neuter clinic will be performing in excess of 20,000 sterilizations per year in order to help reduce the number of unwanted animals eventually ending up our community shelters. The clinic offers a variety of discounted services over and above the spay/neuter services including vaccines, heartworm testing, micro chipping, heartworm prevention, flea prevention, and worming. Spay/Houston also believes in community education and outreach and will continue to focus on spay/neuter education in the community.
The scarce resources available for low cost spay/neuter do not correlate to the number of residents in North Harris and Montgomery counties. Spay/Houston’
This clinic is modeled after a clinic in North Carolina which dropped the euthanasia rate in local shelters 70%. There are no income requirements to use this clinic. The clinic needs to reach capacity so that they can eventually expand to 7 days a week. “We want to be performing 80 surgeries per day by May 2010. We would absolutely love to fill the clinic 7 days a week,” says Executive Director Deana L. Sellens.
It is also critical that the clinic work with rescue groups to ensure its success. For this reason, we have budgeted reduced rates for rescue group program animals. We will also be relying on rescue groups to help coordinate outreach transportation pick-ups and drop-offs. Adopt A Cat is already networking with groups to begin building these key relationships. Eventually Adopt A Cat would like to issue vouchers to participating rescue groups which can be passed out to customers and then invoiced to the rescue groups as the vouchers are redeemed.
