It is heartwarming to see great organizations in our community join forces to make major change for the animals here in Middle Tennessee.
This Saturday, February 26th, Nashville Paw Magazine is hosting Free Spay Day at The Factory at Franklin. Free spay and neuter surgeries aboard New Leash On Life’s Spay Station will be available to those who demonstrate financial need. Pet owners who take part in one of the programs listed here are eligible for an surgery for their pet as space allows. Surgeries are by appointment and will take place from 8am -3pm. To schedule an appointment through the Spay Station, please call (615) 453-2349. The Spay Station will be located outside of Happy Tales Humane’s shelter – allowing for a great opportunity for you to tour the facility and learn more about Happy Tales’ rescue efforts.
Do you know someone living in East Nashville’s 37207 zip code? A one-of-a-kind program has been developed through the collaborative efforts of UPAW, Metro Animal Care and Control (MACC), Metro Health Department, and Nashville Humane Association. Beginning in March and continuing for the next year, residents of 37207 will have access to free spay and neuter surgeries, rabies shots, basic vaccinations, and additional services for their pets. Yes – all for FREE to residents of this zip code with proof of residency. 37207 had the highest number of complaints to MACC in 2010 and now our community is stepping up to make positive change. In the coming months, this program will be expanding to assist 37013 and we can hope that with community support we can continue adding zip codes to the list. Please share this message with the community or forward UPAW’s recent newsletter with details.
Cheers to healthy pets and the end of pet overpopulation!
