Pet clinic reaches spay and neuter milestone

Only six months into its existence, the Spay and Neuter Clinic of Alamance County has already sterilized about 600 cats and dogs.

“We’re really on the way to impacting the pet overpopulation problem in Alamance County,” said Vicky Hunt, a board member of the Pet Adoption and Welfare Society, during a recent report to the Burlington City Council.

The operations have prevented thousands of unwanted pets, Hunt said last week.

In March, the society, known as PAWS, established the low cost veterinary hospital at 1919 S. Church in Burlington.

Last week, Hunt presented the city council with a $14,000 check to buy additional surgical equipment. The equipment is needed because the clinic now has two veterinarians, Hunt said.

PAWS was established in 2002 and built a Pet Adoption Center on Old Stone Quarry Road that opened in May 2004.
