In 2012, the Fredericksburg SPCA opened the Locke Spay and Neuter Clinic. The clinic was an added wing of the original SPCA building, and the hope was to lower overpopulation in companion animals by offering low cost services to the community.
In 2015, we closed the clinic doors to the public after the SPCA’s Veterinarian moved to Florida. What we hoped would be a very brief closing turned into nearly three years. In that time, we completely re-worked what this facility would mean for the SPCA and the community. We revamped all of the policies, procedures, and pricing. When we reopened in October of 2018, we were no longer a Spay and Neuter Clinic- we were a Community Medical Center (CMC) offering a wide array of services from wellness to dentals and, of course, low cost spay and neuter surgeries.
The CMC aims to provide high quality medical care at an affordable price for animals in need. A recent study released by the University of Tennessee Veterinary Social Work Department showed that cost was a barrier for basic preventive care in as many as 80% of homes. Annual preventative care visits are one of the best ways to prevent an emergency situation with your pet which can carry a several thousand dollar price tag. A great example of this is heartworm. Preventing heartworm by annual testing and staying on a preventative can cost less than $200 per year but treatment can easily cost over $1,500.
We hope to be tapping into this large population of pet parents while maintaining solid relationships with community Veterinarians and referring out as needed.
We often see animals surrendered to shelters due to owner’s not being able to afford Vet care. Our hope is that offering our services will result in more animals staying in their current, loving homes.
As always, our focus will be on spay/neuter services. The most effective way to prevent animal overpopulation is by spaying and neutering. Two dogs or cats can become thousands in less than 7 years if left unaltered.
