Spray. Neuter. Now. continues regular vaccination clinics | Events
February is annual spay/neuter awareness month, but low-cost service providers in East Texas will continue to offer services year-round. All spay and neuter procedures are done by appointment only. A list of low-cost East Texas providers is available on the website of Spay/Neuter Support Services of East Texas at www.spayneuter-now.org/low-cost-S-N-in-East-Texas.html.
Vaccination clinics, which do not require appointments, will be held by Spay. Neuter. NOW at two local merchants in Tyler. Horaneys at 5520 Old Jacksonville Highway has donated its premises for the past year. The next clinic at 5520 Old Jacksonville Highway will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 9. The veterinarian is Lynn Foster, D.V.M., with administrative support from Spay. Neuter. NOW and the 4-H Veterinary Science Club of Smith County.
Tractor Supply at 3590 Robertson Road in Tyler has opened its premises for ongoing vaccination clinics from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., with the next two scheduled for March 23 and April 20. The 4-H Veterinary Science Club of Smith County will assist Dr. Foster, with administrative support from volunteers from Spay. Neuter. NOW.

NOW,” says Suzanne Alford, the group’s president. “We focus on services for dogs and cats that are companion animals to low-income citizens, feral cats, and rescued dogs and cats. We have been fortunate to team with the Tyler Crew of O’Malley’s Alley Cats, who rescue and practice trap/neuter/release or TNR, a method successfully used in other states to trap feral cats humanely, sterilize them, and return them to their colony. We are also delighted to work with the 4-H Veterinary Science Club of Smith County and support the work of Lynn Foster, D.V.M.”
