Spay day coming up
MARQUETTE — Annual Spay Day USA 2019 has arrived.
The Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter is once again working with the local vet clinics to offer the service of low cost spays and neuters.
To aid in the efforts of ending animal homelessness and to offer a much needed service to low income pet owners, each area veterinary clinic has offered to perform a limited number of reduced cost spay/neuter surgeries.
To be eligible for the Spay Day USA event, you must be a resident of Marquette County and have a real financial need for help.
The number of surgeries that will be performed at the reduced cost is limited and granted on a first come-first serve basis. Pet owners that need help will be required to sign up in person at the shelter and pay the fees before a surgery can be scheduled.
Stop by or call the shelter at 906-475-6661 for more information.
UPAWS offers a huge thank you to the local veterinary clinics that make this service possible: Marquette Veterinary Clinic, Animal Medical Center, Bayshore Veterinary Hospital, Negaunee Veterinary Clinic, Northern Veterinary Associates and the Gwinn Sawyer Veterinary Clinic.
