Spay and Neuter Assistance
We spend countless hours dealing with the tragic results of cat overpopulation. Sadly, much of the suffering that we see might have been prevented if pets were spayed or neutered before they had a chance to reproduce. There are two low (or no) cost Spay/Neuter Clinics avalable for people needing assistance getting their cats altered.
- Animal Rescue Veterinary Services (Londonderry, NH)
- Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society (Lowell, MA)
If you are not in these areas, use the following "widget", courtesy of Petsmart Charities and the ASPCA, to find a low cost program close to you.
The clinic is held one or two Sundays of every month at Animal Rescue Veterinary Services, 194 Rockingham Rd., Londonderry, NH. (Directions) All surgeries are performed by a licensed veterinarian and are by appointment only. All cats run through this program are spayed (or neutered), receive a distemper and rabies vaccination, as well as a physical exam, a microchip and a nail trim. If your cat requires treatment for infections, earmites, fleas or worms, these medications are dispensed for an additional small fee.
Kittens must weigh a minimum of two pounds in order to be spayed through this clinic. The cost to the pet owner is based on a sliding scale. A suggested donation of $85 per cat is requested; however, grant money may be available for those who are not able to afford the nominal fee. Contact Kitty Angels for information.
