Animal hospital hosting spay/neuter day
Dog and Cat Hospital in Clearview Ridge is hosting a Spay/Neuter Day and donation drive on Saturday to fund Red Deer SPCA animal care.
Dog and Cat Hospital staff hope to complete up to 30 procedures on cats in the care of the SPCA.
The event is part of the SPCA’s new program — The Big Fix for Felines — a partnership between the Red Deer SPCA and nine veterinarian clinics in the region to help the SPCA spay or neuter cats faster to prepare them for adoption.
With more than 125 cats at the shelter, the wait list for surgery at the shelter can back up. Veterinarians are helping out by donating a minimum of one spay or neuter each month.
Participating clinics include: Alberta Veterinary Centre, Central Animal Clinic, East Hill and Clearview Dog and Cat Hospitals, Lomsnes Veterinary Clinic, Parkland Veterinary Clinic, Pathways Animal Clinic, Piper Creek Veterinary Clinic, Sylvan Lake Veterinary Clinic, and Taylor Veterinary Clinic.
