This week, ChattaNeuter Spay Neuter Clinic staff celebrated completing their 30,000th spay/neuter service. A key component in preventing pet homelessness, these services are partially funded through local and national donors as well as client donations. The nonprofit clinic provides surgeries and professional care for pets and adoptable dogs and cats housed at Chattanooga area shelters and rescues.
ChattaNeuter opened in 2017 out of a response to the growing need for high-quality spay/neuter services in Chattanooga.
On the recent milestone, ChattaNeuter Board President Ann Ball said, “Celebrating 30,000 altered animals is an amazing accomplishment. If each of those animals only had five offspring, it would have meant hundreds of thousands of homeless animals in our city. We have been blessed with a dedicated staff who have done an amazing job.” ChattaNeuter Clinic Director Stefanie Douglass added, “We celebrate this milestone with our clients, supporters and their beloved pets and we look forward to continuing to work together as we tackle pet homelessness.”
ChattaNeuter is one of 180 clinics mentored by the ASPCA Spay/Neuter Alliance, the nationally recognized leader in high-quality, high-volume, low-cost spay/neuter. In addition to alteration services, ChattNeuter provides low-cost, walk-in vaccine and microchip clinics for pet owners each month at their Brainerd Road clinic.
