It is hard to believe that the Sumner Spay Neuter Alliance has already been going strong for 2 1/2 years! What's even more remarkable is that we have performed almost 16,000 spay/ neuter surgeries in that time. With the help of loyal supporters and a compassionate community, we have SAVED LIVES by preventing the births of thousands of unwanted puppies and kittens across middle Tennessee.
The demand for our services continues to grow, and we are determined to accommodate anyone who wants their pet spayed or neutered. Due to a waiting list of over 700 dogs and cats, we are currently scheduling appointments five weeks out from the time of call. This is unacceptable - too many kittens and puppies are a result of the "oops" factor...
Voting has ended - and we've won:
First Place, Best Spay Neuter Clinic or Program!
Thanks so much to everyone who voted for our Clinic, we are grateful for your continued support of our mission!
The SSNA Spay/Neuter Clinic is located in the new Bob and Connie Barker Animal Control Facility (across the street from Benny Bills Elementary School). Although housed in the AC facility, the clinic is not operated or financed by the county. Community support is vital so we can continue to help everyone needing our services regardless of ability to pay. The need is great.
Shelters and Rescue Groups in Sumner County are almost always at capacity. Hundreds of healthy, adoptable animals are losing their lives while only a fraction of them are adopted. Many are abandoned to suffer and die alone on the streets. Communities across the country have proven that high quality, low-cost spay/neuter clinics are the most effective means of eliminating the pet overpopulation. Preventing the births of unwanted puppies and kittens will greatly reduce abandonment, abuse and euthanasia. It also gives the many wonderful animals already waiting in shelters a much better chance of being adopted.
