Reduced Spay/Neuter Fees Available to residents in four towns thanks to grant

(Clayton, NJ) — Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger and Freeholder Dan Christy announced that a grant from Best Friends Animal Society to People for Animals will allow the new Spay/Neuter Clinic at Gloucester County Animal Shelter to conduct reduce cost spay/neuter services to residents of Franklin Township, Deptford Township, Monroe Township, and Paulsboro.

Damminger said, “The mission of the Spay/Neuter Clinic is to help reduce the number of animals entering the Gloucester County Animal Shelter.  Before this clinic there were no low cost spay/neuter options for our pet owners and now we have a wonderful facility.”

Freeholder Dan Christy, Liaison to the Gloucester County Animal Shelter said that Franklin, Deptford, Monroe and Paulsboro have a very high intake of cats and dogs at the shelter.

Christy said, “When people spay or neuter their pet they immediately become a part of the solution to reduce unwanted pets who end up in shelters.  People for Animals is doing a great job with the new clinic and by receiving this grant they can offer our residents in many towns an even lower cost option to get their pet spayed or neutered.”

“The grant allows residents of the four townships to get their pet cats spayed/neutered for only $25 and dog prices range from $55 to $85 depending on the size. Lower prices may be available on a case-by-case basis,” Christy said.

Christy said that People for Animal’s goal is to spay and neuter at least 200 pets in our target areas by the end of December and this grant will help them accomplish that goal.

People for Animals is an active partner in Best Friends No More Homeless Pets® Network which offers help and support to animal rescue groups and shelters that save lives in their communities.
