Construction is nearly done on the Windsor Essex Humane Society’s new Spay/Neuter Clinic.  The building is fully constructed and there is just about a months work left with building finishes, parking areas, and the interior finishings.

When the building will officially open is yet to be determined. Melanie Coulter, Executive Director of the Windsor/Essex County Humane Society tells us “It depends on our hiring of a vet, purchase of equipment, staff training in the clinic model we’re using, as well as the accreditation process through the College of Veterinarians of Ontario.  However, we are hoping to have the grand opening in October. The medical team will be in place prior to that date and will be working to get routines into place to enable them to reach our target of 28 surgeries a day as quickly as possible.”

The clinic is Phase 3 of the shelter expansion and there is about half a million dollars still needed to be raised.  As well they also need to raise about $75,000 for all the equipment that they require as well as start-up costs.

They will be launching a campaign soon to start raising money for the equipment they will require, but anyone who wants to help in the mean time with a donation can do so on their website.
