YONKERS, N.Y. -- Westchester pet owners had the opportunity to receive affordable medical assistance for their cats and dogs over the last week when the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation (NY) partnered with medical volunteers and the Yonkers PAL to spay and neuter 170 animals in a clinic.
Westchester volunteer Kristin A. Crage said the four-day event from July 30 to Aug. 2 was a success and would be repeated at a future date.
"The clinic turned out to be as successful as we hoped," Crage said. "We would like to get the Southampton Foundation to come back and help more people and their pets at a low cost."
Dr. Robert Foglia traveled from Colorado to volunteer his services, spaying, neutering and vaccinating 170 dogs and cats. The staff included Pam Pierce of the National Spay Alliance Foundation, Organizer
Leanne Baker Corbin, Assistant Becca Mangan of the Southampton Animal Shelter, Assistant
Kodi Sadler of the Southampton Animal Shelter.
The pet spaying and neutering cost began at about $35 with rabies shots $15. The cost graduated according to the needs of each pet.
"There are no walls between humans and animals except those we put up ourselves. Until we allow all living creatures their place in the sun, we can never be whole ourselves." Crage
