The Animal Care Center at Johnson College is currently accepting applications for Spay Day 2013, which will take place on Wednesday, February 27, 2013. This will be the ninth year that the College has celebrated Spay Day in order to help control pet overpopulation.
According to The Humane Society of the United States, “World Spay Day is an annual campaign of The HSUS and Humane Society International that shines a spotlight on spay/neuter—a proven way to save the lives of companion animals, feral cats, and street dogs who might otherwise be put down in a shelter or killed on the street.”
This one-day only clinic at Johnson College offers discounted spaying and neutering services for dogs and cats. Only residents of Lackawanna County with an income of less than $25,000 annually are invited to apply.
The deadline for filing applications is February 15, 2013 and will be strictly adhered to. Applications can be obtained at www.johnson.edu, by calling 570-702-8961, or by stopping by the Animal Care Center on Johnson College’s campus at 3427 North Main Avenue, Scranton. Incomplete applications or those submitted without verification of income will not be considered. Submitting an application does not guarantee that your animal will be accepted. Please no phone calls to check on the status of applications; Animal Care Center personnel will call eligible applicants to set up an appointment time. Also, day of walk-ins will not be accepted.
