Claremore Animal Shelter receives SPCA grant

CLAREMORE —

Claremore pet owners wanting to spay or neuter their pet but reluctant to do so because of the cost now have an open window to have it done for free, thanks to Claremore Animal Shelter Supervisor Jean Hurst.
For a limited time, the shelter is offering free spaying or neutering to some pet owners in the Claremore area.
‘Earlier this month, the shelter was awarded a $4,500 grant from the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) for a free spay/neuter, vaccination, and pet registration clinic,” Hurst said. 
“We started taking applications (for the clinic) last week, and response has been extremely positive. We’ve still got several thousand dollars left from the grant, so there are several opportunities still available for the public to have their pet spayed or neutered for free, but obviously, the sooner a person applies, the more likely they are to be accepted to the clinic. 
“We’ll keep accepting applications as long as the money (from the grant) is there,” she added. 
Hurst said the free clinic is exclusively for low-income families — those with an annual household income of under $40,000 — living in Claremore, and who can provide verification of their income and residence.
“So long as a person can provide us with proof of residence and income, all they need to do (to apply) is bring their information to the shelter and fill out an application. We then turn their information over to the vet clinic with whom we’re working — Ark Animal Hospital — and after they’re approved, the vet will contact the pet-owner to schedule an appointment.”
Hurst noted that the grant provides for the pet’s worming, Capstar (flea and tick treatment), rabies and booster shots, and city tags, as well as for the spaying or neutering.
