Low Cost Spay-Neuter Clinic to Open

Post Date:07/07/2007

Dr. AlvesOn November 7, 2007, SVACA will be opening a low cost spay/neuter clinic for the residents of Campbell, Monte Sereno and Santa Clara.

"We are so very pleased to be able to offer this much needed service to our residents', says Gina DeMartini, SVACA’s Registered Veterinary Technician. 'We have been working very hard at getting this program on its feet as it will be essential in helping to reduce the animal overpopulation problem in our area.

"Spaying or neutering our companion animals has many benefits such as: prevents the addition of more animals to the overpopulation problem, increases the likelihood that a companion animal will live a long and healthy life, and reduces the chance of unwanted behaviors, i.e. spraying in cats and roaming in dogs.

"Residents will be able to have their dog or cat altered at SVACA’s state-of-the-art Animal Care Center, located at 3370 Thomas Road in Santa Clara, which will celebrate its one year anniversary on November 14. Our clinic will be extremely affordable for those who have a difficult time making ends meet yet want to be responsible animal guardians," adds DeMartini.

The cost of a spay or neuter surgery will be $10 for a cat and $30 for a dog. Other services will also be available at the time of surgery and will be by appointment only. For more information click here or to schedule an appointment, please call us at (408)764-0344.
