Dumb Friends League to open new cat spay/neuter clinic
Animal Assistance Foundation, PetSmart Charities® and American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) join together to help fund innovative facility in Denver
DENVER (January 10, 2017) On Jan. 17, the Dumb Friends League will open a new spay/neuter clinic for cats as part of its ongoing efforts to reduce the number of cats on the streets and in shelters. The Dumb Friends League Solutions – Cat Spay/Neuter Clinic will offer fully subsidized (no-cost) spay/neuter surgeries for all Colorado cats, including feral cats, community cats (tame or feral free-roaming cats), and owned cats. Anyone can bring a cat to the clinic for spay/neuter surgery, regardless of income.
Together with the Dumb Friends League, the new facility and spay/neuter program are being partially funded for a three-year period by generous grants totaling $900,000 donated by the Animal Assistance Foundation, PetSmart Charities®, and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). The program has been endorsed by the Colorado Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) and the local veterinary community. The League will be working closely with local organizations, including Denver Animal Protection, Metro Denver C.A.T. and a number of rescues and TNR groups, for cat trapping and transporting services.
The Dumb Friends League Solutions – Cat Spay/Neuter Clinic will be conveniently located near I-25 and 6th Avenue, at PetAid Colorado on 191 Yuma St. in Denver. The clinic will be operated by the Dumb Friends League and staffed by members of the Dumb Friends League veterinary team.
The clinic will augment—not replace—the Dumb Friends League mobile spay/neuter program. The goal of the clinic will be to spay or neuter 10,000 additional cats per year.
