Augusta Regional SPCA Holds Spay-Neuter Clinic

Posted: Updated:

The Augusta Regional SPCA is working to make animal populations in the valley safer with a spay-neuter clinic.

Vets say the clinic is not just a service to pets, but also to the larger community. The more animals that come in, the fewer diseases and unwanted animals there will be out there.

And besides cutting down on the number of abandoned puppies and kittens, you can extend the lifetime of your beloved pets.

"It improves their behavior. It cuts down on roaming, it cuts down on fighting, and then other health issues. Female dogs going into heat over and over, they will in a matter of time develop mammary tumors," said Dr. Julie Bullock, a vet at the SPCA.

The SPCA has also applied for grants so that in the future those in need can still get the procedures done at a reduced cost.
