This morning, the Windsor/Essex County Humane Society announced that they preformed their 1,000th spay/neuter surgery at their newly opened clinic located on the grounds of the Humane Society.
The clinic opened on November 8th, 2011. The 1,000th surgical patient is named “Windsor”, and is a 1-year old orange and white female cat.
Melanie Coulter, Executive Director to the Humane Society says that in addition to all the health benefits of being spayed, and the satisfaction of knowing that she will not contribute to the overpopulation of cats in our community.
“Windsor” will receive a gift basket donated by Pethealth, Inc which includes a one-year Ontario Pet Insurance policy valued at up to $2,500.
Coulter goes on to say “The spay/neuter clinic is a desperately-needed component of our goal to end the needless euthanasia of animals in our community. There continue to be too many animals in our community giving birth to unwanted litters, often because their owners are unable to have them spayed or neutered for financial reasons. The Humane Society has researched this issue extensively and found that this type of clinic has been successful in other areas by dramatically reducing intake at local shelters while not negatively impacting the private veterinary community.”
