SNYP clinic gets grant for medicine, vaccines
The Spay/Neuter Your Pet Clinic in Talent has been awarded an $8,500 veterinary assistance grant from the Banfield Foundation to cover flea and tick medications and vaccinations for qualifying low-income clients. “We are so happy to be able to offer this most basic care to our low-income clients’ pets,” said SNYP President Sally Mackler. “Studies show that the majority of animals served by low-cost spay/neuter clinics like ours have not received vaccines or seen a veterinarian.” Since opening in February, the clinic has performed more than 980 spay and neuter surgeries on cats and dogs, including owned pets, shelter animals and homeless cats.
