How our Spay/Neuter Clinic Works
Pet owners and caretakers can call us to schedule an appointment. We provide details on what to do before surgery and answer any questions. The morning of the surgery, the animal is brought to the mobile clinic, stays on-board for surgery, and is released that afternoon after safely awakening from anesthesia. We provide detailed instructions for care after surgery as well as a phone number for any issues that arise during recovery at home.
All spay/neuter surgeries are performed by a qualified and licensed veterinarian. Every patient receives a physical exam by the veterinarian prior to surgery. Patients who require additional veterinary care may be referred to local full-service veterinary clinics. AVOR is not a full-service clinic. Vaccines and other services are only available on the day of surgery.
Rabies Vaccine (for clinics, 1 year or 3 year with proof of previous rabies) $10
Heartworm Testing $20
Flea Prevention $20
Heartworm Prevention $5/month
Microchips (dogs and cats) $20
AVOR received the mobile surgery clinic as a donation from Encore Pets, Inc., in 2015, allowing this important program to continue to operate in eastern NC. The custom-built 33’ long mobile clinic enables us to bring safe and affordable spay/neuter, vaccination and other services to the most rural parts of our county. In many cases, owners are unable to keep their pets because they cannot afford veterinary care, especially spaying and neutering. Owners often end up with unwanted litters, which exacerbates the problem. We believe that by offering these services where they are needed, we can significantly reduce the number of pets that are surrendered to shelters. The clinic is capable of spaying/neutering 25-30 cats and dogs a day and we offer clinics once a month. To date, we have spayed/neutered over 300 cats and dogs, thanks largely to the support of the Brandt Animal Foundation Spay/Neuter Grant Program.
