Southern Pines Spay and Neuter achieves major milestone

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

 The Southern Pines Animal Shelter Spay and Neuter Clinic celebrated a major milestone Thursday afternoon.

After five-years in operation the clinic has gone over the 30,000 mark in spay or neuter surgeries. The clinic opened to 2009 in a rented building on Highway 49. They purchased the building at their current location on Hardy Street in 2012. In 2014 they added an additional veterinarian to help meet the needs of the communities in the Pine Belt. With the support of organizations like Pet Smart Charities, the Humane Society of the United States, and local donors they have continued to accomplish their mission of preventing unwanted litters of puppies and kittens.

"It's huge for the clinic, We're at 30,000 and still going strong," said Dr. Alicia Hatch, SPAS Veterinarian. "There's still lots of work to be done. It's amazing that we can get that many animals into this clinic fixed and back into the community happy and healthy."


The clinic provides low cost spay or neuter to pets anywhere in the Pine Belt.
