PAWS sponsored a Spay/Neuter Clinic on December 12th, 2017 which was held at Fort Kent Animal Hospital. This was the fourth clinic this year and all of them were highly successful. Our most recent clinic helped pet owners who needed financial assistance to get their cats altered. We fixed a total of 32 cats, 11 females and 21 males. This brings the total of cats spayed or neutered this year at our clinics to 118, 53 females and 65 males. These clinics are a valuable community service; 118 cats in the area will no longer be adding to the overpopulation of cats and these cats will now be healthier and their owners will have better pets. We want to thank Dr. Yule and her staff for making this possible and for sponsoring the clinic in February and we want to thank Susan Hall and Sandi Coburn for sponsoring the clinic in May.
Another Huge Successful Spay/Neuter Clinic
