Since March 2015, the Gloucester-Mathews Humane Society has spayed and neutered 84 animals for free! Our goal is to spay and neuter 350 animals by March 2016. Spaying and neutering reduces the volume of animals in shelters, reduces the urge of pets to roam and become lost, and reduces the chance of medical conditions associated with reproduction. The GMHS is doing everying in our power to make choosing to spay and neuter a reality, but we need your help! Every month, we rent a mobile clinic so we can offer members of our community the option to spay and neuter their pets for free. Your donation will go toward paying for the clinic and keeping our service running so we can reach our goal!
Here is our most recenty celebrated story from our May spay/neuter program:
Marlow stopped by the GMHS because he had seen an advertisement for our free monthly mobile spay/neuter clinic and wanted to make appointments for his three cats. He worked with our amazing Vet Tech, Heather, to schedule his cats for May, but when the day came, he had transportation problems and thought he missed his chance. But GMHS rallied to assist, driving out to pick up the animals and bring them in for their appointment.
When we arrived, we caught all three adult cats and found there were two litters of kittens happy to see us! Marlow was happy to have us find homes for most of the animals but asked that we bring back two kittens and one adult after they were old enough to be spayed. We happily agreed, as he clearly loves his cats. We gave him food and litter and took fourteen kitties to receive medical care, get spayed or neutered, and find new homes! The GMHS free spay/neuter clinic is changing the lives of animals and the people who love them!
