A Martinez clinic spay-neuter clinic will be offering discounted spay and neuter services on Thursday as part of Fix Georgia Pets Day.
Heartsong Spay Neuter Clinic at 412 S. Belair Road is one of numerous Georgia clinics to participate in the effort to prevent animal overpopulation. The event is sponsored by Fix Georgia Pets, a nonprofit organization.
Fix Georgia Pets Executive Director Gigi Graves said in a press release that unwanted animals, mostly dogs and cats, end up abandoned and ultimately in public animal control centers where 62 percent are euthanized.
“Our ultimate vision is to end the pet overpopulation crisis and the suffering that unwanted pets often endure,” Graces said in the release. “By increasing awareness of the problem, Fix Georgia Pets can help reduce the number of animals without homes.”
Heartsong is offering free spays and neuters to pets of residents of Burke County, Waynesboro, Ga., Girard, Ga., South Augusta, and low-income residents of Columbia County.
All pets must have current rabies vaccinations or receive a rabies vaccine for $9 at the time of check-in. No checks will be accepted.
