The Fix’Em Clinic, a new program of the Charleston Regional Spay/Neuter Center, is set to open by the end of summer.
The goal is to minimize the euthanasia and suffering of thousands of animals in our region and strive for a time when every companion animal has a loving home. A humane, sustainable solution is to prevent the births of unwanted litters through spay/neuter. To substantially impact the population you must spay and neuter a LOT of dogs and cats and people must be able to afford your fees. They will accomplish this at the Fix’Em Clinic by spaying and neutering around 7,000 dogs and cats every year at a cost substantially lower than the average fee in our area. This clinic model is called a High-Quality, High-Volume, Affordable Spay/Neuter clinic.
Humane Alliance, a program of the ASPCA, developed this model and mentors groups like ours through the process to ensure we meet the high standards of top quality care at an affordable cost. They are proud to be the only approved Humane Alliance clinic in our area, and only the second one in West Virginia. The entire staff will receive specialized training on High Quality, High Volume Spay/Neuter at Humane Alliance’s headquarters in Asheville, NC .
They will not be income based or have geographic restrictions – they welcome anyone to use our services! They are here to help the underserved communities in Southern West Virginia so transport services from outlying areas to and from our clinic will be provided.
The Fix’Em Clinic is not yet open for business. They are currently renovating to open later this summer and are proud to say, with your help, they raised $160,000 to date! The goal is to raise the remaining $150,000 needed to accomplish our mission. They need your help to cross the finish line and open our doors to serve YOU and your neighbors.
