CORNWALL – A spokesman for the OSPCA says the society will start taking registrations for its low-income spay and neuter clinic in September.

While trying to steer pet owners toward “many fantastic veterinarians and vet clinics” in the area, the SD&G SPCA will be holding the clinic to “make some headway” on the city’s cat problem.

The clinic will be for two days – Oct. 4-5, 2018 – with the help of the Welland and District Humane Society.

In an emailed statement to Cornwall Newswatch, OSCPA’s Stephanie Johns says they “look forward to securing the support of the City of Cornwall to offset the costs in tackling their local challenge of cat overpopulation.”

City council will be addressing that issue at an upcoming council meeting.

Spay and neuter procedures will be $150 per dog and $90 per cat. Wellness exams are also being performed for $30 per animal.

Johns says the clinic will be limited to performing six dog spays, eight dog neuters, 10 cat spays and eight cat neuters.

You will have to check the SD&G Animal Center website the first week of September to register or call 613-936-0072 for more information.

People registering will have to provide government identification, proof of income and pay for the procedure when they book for the clinic.
