Low cost clinic offers half price spay and neuter for pets

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Henry Wrinkles Foundation put on a low cost spay and neuter clinic Saturday in Jonesboro.


Region 8 Residents had the opportunity to have their pets fixed at a reduced price.

"It varies from event to event what they have to pay," Susan Boyd with the Foundation told Region 8 News. "It's probably half price or better."

Boyd said signing up for the event is easy.

"You sign up in advance and generally the veterinarian will tell us how many slots they have open to spay and neuter and that's what we'll fill. So far we have a back log of people. There's a large demand for this," Boyd said.

If you missed Saturday's opportunity for a low cost spay and neuter clinic, you can visit the Henry Wrinkles Foundation website for dates.

Veterinarian Brent Reddick said a big problem in Region 8 is over population.

"Too many pets go un-spayed un-neutered. They're strays, wander around and have puppies and are uncared for. They can have diseases and that's too late. There's a lot of suffering that goes on if that occurs," Reddick said.

The Humane Society of Blytheville was also at Hollywood Feed for pet adoptions. The society is usually at Hollywood Feed every third Saturday of the month. If you're interested in adopting a pet from the Blytheville Humane Society, contact Larry Abramson at (870) 532-6698. You can also visit their website for more information.

The event took place from noon until 4pm at Hollywood Feed off of Highland Drive.

    The holiday season is usually a time of happiness and enjoyment with family and friends, but that can be different for some suffering from a mental health illness.
