The Charleston Regional Spay Neuter Center, Inc. dba Fix’Em Clinic, is proud to announce an $89,500.00 grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, (ASPCA). The funds are designated for equipment, caging, and supplies for the new stand alone spay/neuter clinic located at 102 Dee Dr. in Charleston, WV.
The goal of the clinic is to minimize the euthanasia and suffering of thousands of animals in our 23-county 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 the Fix’Em Clinic through the process to ensure all the high standards of top quality care at an affordable cost. The Fix’Em Clinic is 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 .
“The Fix’Em Clinic so honored to receive the support of the ASPCA. Their support of low cost spay/neuter will make such a difference in Southern WV. Thank-you!,” stated Lisa Mitchell, Program Director.
The Fix’Em Clinic has been working on this project for almost 4 years. Nice to see it come to a successful conclusion.
