No-cost spay/neuter funding dwindles

Time and money are running out for Blount County residents interested in having their pets spayed or neutered at no charge.

By combining available grant funding, AnimalWorks, an Alcoa-based spay/neuter and pet adoption organization, has been offering no-cost spay/neuter services to qualified low-income Blount County residents for several months. Limited funding remains, so interested pet owners are encouraged to schedule spay/neuter services soon.

The mission of AnimalWorks is to reduce the homeless pet population in East Tennessee. Since its inception in September 2001, AnimalWorks has spayed or neutered over 13,000 animals and found homes for more than 5,000 cats and dogs.

AnimalWorks’ spay/neuter clinic is at 3377 Regal Drive behind West Chevrolet off Alcoa Highway.

To make a spay/neuter appointment or for more information about AnimalWorks’ spay/neuter services, call 865-379-2227 or
