Low Cost Spay / Neuter
In 2009 we began a low cost spay and neuter program for pets whose owners live in Duplin County and have a financial need. In the last 10 years, thanks to our participating veterinarians, we have helped alter over 4500 pets.
Grants from the Albert Schweitzer Animal Welfare Fund and the North Carolina Community Foundation help fund this program.
