GAYLORD — Friends for Life, Inc. of Otsego County, in cooperation with Wags to Wiskers Pet Supplies in Gaylord and Bud Jones Insurance Agency in Lewiston, will sponsor two upcoming mobile cat spay and neuter clinics.
The clinics will be held Thursday, Sept. 27, and Thursday, Oct. 18, at Wags to Wiskers, 1415 W. Main St.
Cost for males is $30 and females is $60.
However, to encourage spay and neutering, Friends for Life will reduce the cost by $10 per cat. That means pet owners pay $20 for a neuter and $50 for a spay.
Shots for dogs and cats will be offered in the afternoon at a cost of $15 for each vaccination. Appointments are required.
To set up an appointment, call Sally at Bud Jones Insurance Agency at 786-2296. Participants should leave their name, the date preferred and phone number. A form will be mailed.
Applications can be picked up at the Otsego County Animal Control Shelter, Wags to Wiskers or Bud Jones Insurance Agency, but a $5 deposit (checks paid payable to D.C. Bullerdick, DVM) is required to hold the appointment. If a patient does not show up for the clinic, the deposit is forfeited.
Payment is due when the cat is picked up following the procedures. Cats will be dropped off at all clinics between 8:30 and 9 a.m. and must be in carriers. Reminder phone calls will be made.
Anyone wanting to schedule shots only for their pets should call Sally, leaving their name and number so Friends for Life volunteers can put them on the list and call them as a reminder. She will mail them a green form to fill out, detailing the vaccinations requested.
Shots will be given in the afternoons at approximately 3 p.m. The staff will try to be as close to this time as possible, but the shot-only clinic is dependent upon when other procedures are finished.
The staff will call or text pet owners if the procedures are completed earlier than planned. Mail completed forms and deposits to Maggie Tatum, P.O. Box 1100, Lewiston, MI, 49756.
