2 Generous Donors Aid ChattaNeuter

Tuesday, July 5, 2022

Officials of ChattaNeuter said two generous donors have helped the facility on the path to reach their goal of providing professional, subsidized spay/neuter services to eliminate the unnecessary euthanasia of cats and dogs by funding interior remodeling of the clinic to enlarge and increase efficiency in the medical areas.

They have also generously underwritten two free spay/neuter days for qualified appointments made at ChattaNeuter, it was stated.

Officials said, "Staff veterinarians have already altered 32 animals during the first scheduled free spay neuter day with the next opportunity scheduled for later in July. Recipients have been selected on a case-by-case basis.

"ChattaNeuter requests donations and grants to help underwrite the cost of spay neuter surgery for those pet owners most in need and depend on donors like these. The current location was built in the 1950’s and although the location is ideal, expanding the footprint to meet the overwhelming local need has not been possible. The ability to remodel and repurpose some of the interior spaces will help staff be able to make more of an impact on pet overpopulation in the Chattanooga area.

"These two charitable benefactors, who prefer to remain anonymous, are joining a list of concerned animal lovers who realize spay/neuter is critical to the city’s efforts to prevent homeless animals. The board and staff are incredibly grateful and hope this substantial gift to ChattaNeuter will inspire other, like-minded animal lovers to support this work."

To donate or to make an appointment for "high-quality, high-volume subsidized spay/neuter or animal health services," please visit ChattaNeuter.org and book online or call 423-531-7729 Monday-Friday 9:00-4:30. ChattaNeuter is a 501-c3 organization, and all gifts are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
