Did You Know?
Did you know that we’ve been offering low-cost spay and neuter, affordable vaccinations and preventive health care services at our animal care center since 2009? Well, it’s true! Thanks to the generosity and continued support of our donors, we remain able to continue these important public services while working to fulfill our mission of “reducing the number of homeless animals and improve the quality of life.” The purpose of our clinic is to encourage everyone, regardless of income, to properly care for their pets. In fact, we credit our preventive health care clinic with helping some people to avoid giving up their beloved pets or even having them euthanized during difficult financial times. We believe that spaying and neutering of companion animals is a necessary requirement for the effective control of the homeless animal population. It saves lives by not allowing dogs and cats to be born, just to become sad statistics in animal shelters. Preventive veterinary care is essential to keeping pets healthy and happy. The educational guidance we provide to pet owners is immeasurable. Our Preventive Health Care Clinic also offers de-wormers, heartworm testing and micro-chipping, which is an effective form of identification. Micro-chipping is very important, especially in southwest Florida where pets can easily become separated from their human families during storm season. Although we do not screen clients based on their financial abilities, our desire is to continue to help those with limited finances, care for their pets. We strongly recommended that anyone using our services establish a relationship with a full service veterinary clinic that is able to provide all the medical services your pet may require.
