|Sumner Spay Neuter Alliance celebrates one year anniversary|
|Friday, July 27, 2012|
The Sumner Spay Neuter Alliance opened its doors on July 15, 2011. Since opening, Dr. Yvette Pennington has surgically sterilized 6,300 dogs and cats.
“The math is simple: the more dogs and cats we spay and neuter, the fewer dogs and cats our county has to euthanize. No one wants to see these animals put to sleep just because there are too many and that is exactly what is happening. We are here to change that,” said Sara Felmlee, program director.Even though more than 100 dogs and cats are fixed every week at SSNA, thousands will still lose their lives in our community every year because of too many pet births and not enough homes for them all.
The clinic is located at 1033 B Union School Road in Gallatin, in the Bob and Connie Barker Animal Control facility which is a division of the Sumner County Sheriff’s Office. SSNA is a private, nonprofit organization.
SSNA offers low cost spay/neuter services to the public as well as shelters and rescue groups. Fees are as follows: $30 cat neuter, $40 cat spay, $45 dog neuter, $55 dog spay. A rabies vaccination is included in this price if needed. Financial assistance is available to those who qualify and cannot afford regular fees.
