AHS Spay/Neuter Van

Posted on: August 23rd, 2012 by admin

The Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park has announced that the Mobile Spay/Neuter van will be the Forked River location during the last two weeks of September offering low-cost spay/neuter services, vaccines and microchips.  All animals altered on the unit get their nails clipped, ears cleaned and sport a tattoo showing that they have been spayed.


Since this is only a 2 week effort, be sure to make your appointments early!
