The clinic offers surgery to low-income pet owners at prices below actual cost. “This generous grant from Two Mauds will help us close the gap so we can continue to make affordable surgery available to the animals and owners who need us most in our community,” said volunteer clinic director Katie Turbyfill.
The Two Mauds Foundation was created after the death of New York physician Dallas Pratt. Dr. Pratt wished to support “organizations whose work prevents or relieves the exploitation and suffering of animals.”
The Danville-Boyle County Humane Society opened the Happy Paws Spay/Neuter Clinic in October 2007. The one-day-per-week clinic makes affordable surgery prices available to individuals receiving public assistance, those with low incomes and social security recipients.
The clinic is staffed by a paid veterinarian and a technician, and more than 1,100 surgeries are performed each year. About 30 volunteers are responsible for the clinic operation.
