ASPCA Returns to Joplin to Host Low-Cost Spay/Neuter & Vaccine Clinic

Wednesday, May 23, 2012 - 3:00pm

To mark the first anniversary of the Joplin tornado, the ASPCA's National Spay/Neuter Project is returning to the once-devastated community. Teaming up with Joplin Humane Society, the team will host a low-cost spay/neuter and vaccine clinic from June 1 to June 3.

"Last year, the ASPCA was one of the first responders on the scene, and we witnessed first-hand the devastation that the tornado caused," says Shelby Davis, Director of ASPCA Spay/Neuter Operations. "We have returned to Joplin to offer much-needed animal services to pet parents who may still be struggling to make ends meet."

Appointments must be made in advance for the spay/neuter surgery, and the vaccine clinic will run from noon to 3:00 P.M. each day. For more information or to make an appointment for spay/neuter, Joplin-area residents should call (877) SPAY-NYC.
