FLINT (WJRT) - (11/09/17) - All About Animals' new low-cost spay/neuter clinic is designed to help end animal homelessness and reduce overpopulation of cats and dogs in animal shelters.
The clinic at the intersection of Atherton Road and Grand Traverse Avenue will open its doors next Tuesday.
"We couldn't be here enough," clinic director Renee Jarackas said. "There's so many people that just can't afford regular veterinary care or don't even pursue regular veterinary care for their pets. That's our target audience. Those are the people who we try to help the most."
People who live in the area are welcoming the clinic's presence.
"There was another company that my wife had looked into that was going to charge us in the neighborhood of $500 to get both of our cats taken care of," Josh Conrad said.
With All About Animals moving in, Josh and his wife would pay $40 to have his cats spayed or neutered. The cost is $80 to have dogs sterilized.
The new clinic is set to open at 11 a.m. on Tuesday. The entire project costs about $1.3 million, and they can service 90 to 100 animals per day.
