The Windsor/Essex County Humane Society celebrated the first anniversary on their Veterinary Clinic focused on spay and neuter on Thursday.

Melanie Coulter the Executive Director of the Windsor-Essex County Humane Society says that during their first year of operation, the clinic spayed or neutered more than 4,000 animals. She states that the clinic is a desperately needed component of our goal to become a community with no more homeless pets.

The intake of cats at the Humane Society has dropped by nearly 1,200 cats to date in 2012 over the same period in 2011. They say that although they can’t attribute the drop solely to the new clinic, this trend follows what has happened in other areas where a Humane Society has been able to provide public spay/neuter services to the community.

The clinic is located on the grounds of the Humane Society, 1375 Provincial Road and officially opened on November 8th 2011.
