Kimberly Warren, executive director of Middle Tennessee Spay and Neuter Clinic, 846 Union St., said last Saturday's rabies and microchip clinic went well, despite the weather.
The clinic served 200 animals with rabies vaccinations. There were 21 animals microchipped. There were also other vaccinations performed, Warren said. She thanked the community for its response and patience during the drive by event.
The non profit serves this entire area with low cost and high quality licensed veterinary services. Have you just adopted a cat or dog? Or are you still thinking about getting a pet? Whichever it is - new pet or still considering - don't forget to get it "fixed," Warren says.
Spaying--removing the ovaries and uterus of a female pet--is a veterinary procedure that requires minimal hospitalization and offers lifelong health benefits, she said. "Neutering--removing the testicles of a male dog or cat--will vastly improve a pet's behavior and keep him close to home."
Warren advised the mission at the Middle Tennessee Spay and Neuter Clinic is to alleviate pet overpopulation by providing affordable spay/neuter services for dogs and cats-those belonging to responsible pet owners and caretakers in the middle Tennessee area-and to provide and promote education for the humane care and treatment for all animals.
