Donors Helping Pay for Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Surgeries

Two major donors have come forward to help pay the $20 per pet fee for spay/neuter surgery at the mobile vet clinic coming to GEICO in February.

Thanks to a $300 donation from Heart of Georgia Humane Society and a $200 donation from Anna Roberts and Rivoli Realty, plus help from other donors, the fee for 37 of the spay/neuter surgeries are covered.

Cost for the surgery, plus a microchip and rabies shot, is only $20 per pet. The clinic is designed to help senior citizens and low-income residents get their pets "fixed" to stop unwanted litters of puppies and kittens from flooding Macon Animal Control constantly. Many of these unwanted babies die because no homes can be found in time to save them.

Now, 37 low-income and senior residents will not have to scrape together the $20 fee. In these hard times, $20 can be a stretch for many pet owners. That does not make them bad owners, just owners in a bad situation. These generous donations will go a long way towards helping those owners who want to do the right thing but need a helping hand.

All of the slots for this visit from the H.E.A.R.T. Surgical Utility Vehicle are taken, but the self-contained, mobile veterinary clinic will return at a later date. (See the original story here)
