Is this a veterinary clinic?
No. The sole purpose of this clinic is to reduce pet overpopulation by making spay/neuter available to every pet owner. The clinic will not provide routine wellness care, treat sick or injured animals, nor perform any other type of surgery.

Who performs surgery at this type of clinic?
Only licensed veterinarians can perform spay or neuter surgeries. The clinic staff will consist of one Michigan licensed veterinarian, two licensed veterinary technicians, along with veterinary assistants and a clinic manager.

Why is the cost less than traditional veterinary clinics?
Though the procedure is exactly the same, as a nonprofit entity, the Capital Area Humane Society is donor supported and is qualified for grant funding in support of this clinic. Also, the clinic is designed and specialized for spay/neuter procedures and thus maximized efficiency.

Why is spaying or neutering my pet important?
According to the Michigan Department of Agriculture, more than 220,000 animals end up in Michigan shelters each year. Unfortunately, less than half of these animals get adopted. Spaying and neutering prevents pet overpopulation and can also provide a better quality of life for your pet. It ensures that your pet will not have offspring that will meet an unimaginable fate.
