Tuesdays starting immediately: Low Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic Now Offers Free Transport from Bangor, Waterville and Augusta

Bangor, Augusta, Waterville -

STATEWIDE – Many people in Maine cannot afford to spay or neuter their pets, but central Maine now has more and more affordable spay/neuter options. The Community Spay/Neuter Clinic in Freeport now offers affordable low cost spay/neuter surgeries with free van transport from Bangor, Waterville and Augusta.

27,000 cats and dogs enter Maine’s shelters every year. 9,000 of these pets must be euthanized because there are not enough homes for them all. Many people don’t realize that their pet’s kittens or puppies could end up having to be euthanized or left out in the cold. Also, even if people find homes for every puppy or kitten in the litter, they are contributing to pet homelessness and euthanasia because for every kitten or puppy they give away, a cat or dog in the shelter doesn’t get a home.

Spaying and neutering also makes pets better companions by preventing objectionable behaviors like heat cycles in both cats and dogs and spraying in cats.

This van transports cats, kittens, dogs and puppies in the morning to the Community Spay/Neuter Clinic in Freeport then returns them in the early evening. The clinic is a state-of-the-art Humane Alliance Model spay/neuter clinic. It is devoted to ending pet overpopulation through spay/neuter. The clinic veterinarians have special training in pediatric spay/neuter meaning they can spay and neuter cats and dogs as young as eight weeks old. The director of the clinic is Dr. Elizabeth Stone. The clinic can be reached at 865-0772 or for more information you can go to : http://www.communityspayneuterclinic.com/.
