The Animal Shelter is again teaming up with Saint Seton’s Orphaned Animals “Neuter Scooter” to offer spay/neuter services to Prince William County residents.
The “Neuter Scooter” will be picking up cats and dogs at 7 a.m. on Friday, March 10th from the Animal Shelter parking lot, located at 14807 Bristow Road in Manassas (20112). The animals will be safely transported to Loving Touch Animal Hospital in Fredericksburg for the procedures. The mobile unit will return the pets to the Animal Shelter parking lot at 6:30 p.m. for owner pick up.
All dogs are required to have a heartworm test. If your dog has heartworms, the doctor cannot perform surgery as this could be fatal. The hospital also requires a pre-anesthesia panel and IV catheter for pets over the age of seven years, to make sure your senior pet can process the anesthesia before performing surgery. There are costs associated with these requirements so if your pet already has vaccines and a heartworm test, please have your vet fax the records to Loving Touch Animal Hospital prior to the day.
Due to the popularity of this program, the Neuter Scooter will again offer this service on Wednesday, March 29, 2017.
The Prince William County Animal Shelter reminds residents that spaying or neutering of pets helps improve the quality of life of our pets and our community.
