Donations are being sought for two spay and neuter clinics in northern Manitoba.
Manitoba Underdogs Rescue is holding the first of the clinics today in Sandy Bay First Nation. Veterinary services aren’t typically available in remote communities, where thousands of dogs fall victim to harsh living conditions every year.
“Clinics like this are essential to controlling the unwanted animal populations in northern communities like Sandy Bay,” said executive director Jessica Hansen.
“We want to make these surgeries accessible to everyone in the community.”
The mobile clinic being organized by Manitoba Underdogs Rescue will offer spay and neuter services to residents for $50 per dog. They and are seeking donations to cover the rest of the cost of the clinics, which is expected to be about $5,000.
