Low-income residents and seniors can now have their pets spayed or neutered at Mid-South Spay & Neuter Services for as low as $5 for cats and between $10 and $25 for dogs.
The new low prices are thanks to a $10,000 grant the organization received from the Margarette J. Sather Animal Welfare Fund of the Community Foundation of Greater Memphis.
Co-pay prices for those who qualify will be as follows:
$5 for cats
$10 for small dogs, 25 lbs. and under
$15 for medium dogs, 26-40 lbs.
$20 for large dogs, 41-75 lbs.
$25 for extra large dogs, 76 lbs. and over
Mid-South Spay & Neuter Services performed 5,200 surgeries in 2011, and they're hoping this grant will significantly increase those numbers for 2012.
“We believe that all responsible pet owners deserve the right to care for their companion animal, despite inability to pay the typical prohibitive high costs of sterilization, " said MSNS president Patrick Wyatt. "Mid-South Spay and Neuter is proud to offer our already affordable services at a reduced rate so that everyone in the Mid-South can afford to help us end pet overpopulation.”
To make an appointment, call 901-324-3202. At time of surgery, vaccinations and microchipping can be added for an additional fee. The clinic at 854 Goodman is open Tuesday through Friday.
