Help us spread the word about spay/neuter by using one of our new bumper stickers! That’s what Bella and Bear Bear Cook’s “Big Daddy” did!
Bella (the camera hog hanging out the window) and Bear Bear (a shy guy hiding behind her) were the first arrivals of the morning. This cute Maltese duo lives with a Beagle and a Hurricane Katrina dog, both of whom are spayed/neutered. Their family does not want any puppies – four dogs are enough – and found out about Spay Hampton Roads on Craigslist.
In addition to Craigslist, today’s clinic participants heard about us in a variety of ways. Tiffany Wilson has been watching Freecycle, waiting for us to come to her neighborhood. When she saw there was space for today’s clinic, she contacted us right away for an appointment to have her dog, Pepper, neutered.
Alice Raynor heard about our clinics from a friend who had previously participated. She brought Missy, a Pekingese/Shih Tzu mix, to be spayed this morning. Juliette Gretzler heard about our clinics from her neighbor, who will receive a gift certificate as thanks for the referral. Elaine Woods-Martinez received an email from Willoughby iNeighbors, which shares community information with subscribers. She brought her Yorkshire Terrier, Otto, to be neutered.
We’re thankful for all of the hard work our volunteers and former clinic participants put in to share the message about spay/neuter. We still need Norfolk cats in our clinics, though, so please look for feline friends in need of a snip!
