Once again, thanks to generous funding from the Coosa Valley Resource Conservation & Development Council, Coosa County residents can utilize a free spay and neuter program for their pets or strays.
The Coosa Valley RC&D Council has made this program possible. The council is composed of 11 counties in east-central Alabama, and two of its 11 counties do not have a veterinarian or animal shelter.
Therefore, for the third year, the Coosa Valley RC&D Council has partnered with two veterinarians for Coosa and Cleburne County residents.
Those wishing to take advantage of this program must provide a valid ID for proof of residency. This is a limited service, so those wishing to take part in it are encouraged to book appointments as soon as possible.
For Coosa County residents the partnering veterinarian is Dr. Angela Gavin Smith with Alexander City Veterinary Clinic. This spay and neuter program is free to all Coosa County residents until funds run out.
With limited funding and each animal costing different amounts to be spayed or neutered, the clinic can only book appointments a few weeks out so as to not over-commit the funding.
Those taking part are asked to please be patient with the clinics in helping the RC&D Council in this program.
For more information call the Alexander City Veterinary Clinic at 256-234-6751 or the Coosa Valley RC&D Council at 256-253-2454.
