Donors Helping Pay for Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Surgeries

Donors Helping Pay for Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Surgeries

Two major donors have come forward to help pay the $20 per pet fee for spay/neuter surgery at the mobile vet clinic coming to GEICO in February.

Thanks to a $300 donation from Heart of Georgia Humane Society and a $200 donation from Anna Roberts and Rivoli Realty, plus help from other donors, the fee for 37 of the spay/neuter surgeries are covered.

Cost for the surgery, plus a microchip and rabies shot, is only $20 per pet. The clinic is designed to help senior citizens and low-income residents get their pets "fixed" to stop unwanted litters of puppies and kittens from flooding Macon Animal Control constantly. Many of these unwanted babies die because no homes can be found in time to save them.
