The city's low-cost spay and neuter clinic will soon be moving from its cramped space at 854 Goodman to a larger facility in Hickory Hill, thanks to a building donation from First Tennessee.

The new location at 5650 Mt. Moriah is twice as large as the current Mid-South Spay & Neuter Services facility, the waiting room for which is often standing-room-only on a typical day. Since the new space was a former veterinary clinic, future renovations are expected to be feasible and cost-effective. The larger size will allow the clinic to increase the number of patients it's able to treat.

First Tennessee gave the building to Mid-South Spay & Neuter Services as part of their community investment efforts, through which it donates foreclosed properties to nonprofit groups. Mid-South Spay & Neuter Services will start a public fund-raising campaign to fund renovations to the new space.

I am thrilled for this wonderful group of people who do so much for the animals in this area, and even more excited for all the animals who will benefit from their services. Kudos to First Tennessee for their help! Now, let's all get on board to help raise funds for the renovations.

We have used the Mid-South Spay & Neuter Services twice, and likely will again. They perform an absolutely invaluable and necessary service for those of us who care enough to try to get a handle on the outrageous abandoned/neglected/abused animal situation in Memphis and Shelby County. Something that the "new logo"-seeking Memphis Animal Slaughterhouse (MAS) ought to be doing, but are too steeped in their Memphis City business-as-usual/moronic status quo to ever be proactive rather than reactive towards this sad situation. So, thanks to First Tennessee and the thoughtful folks at MSSNS, the good work continues.
