NEPA Animal Welfare Collaborative offers free spay and neuter program
The NEPA Animal Welfare Collaborative has launched a free spay and neuter program to help local dog owners in need of assistance.
The program is open to residents of Lackawanna and Luzerne counties who have a dog over the age of six months. Participants must prove eligibility for the program before the surgery.
To qualify for the program, participants must provide a copy of one of the following documents: an Access Card award letter, dated utility receipt showing LIHEAP assistance, SSD/SSI award letter, PACE card, WIC card or Medicaid card.
The program is first come, first served until funding from a Bob Jones Dog Trust grant is depleted.
The NEPA Rescue Veterinary Clinic at Indraloka Animal Sanctuary in Dalton will provide the services.
