The solution to the stray, abandoned, and unwanted companion animal dilemma is this: only by spaying and neutering all companion animals will we get a handle on pet overpopulation, with all its tragic consequences.
We target companion animal and feral cat populations that are most in need of spay/neuter services. In doing this, we can make the greatest impact on Western New Yorks overpopulation problem.
Our goal is to safely spay/neuter as many animals as possible. We only provide services for healthy animals in order to minimize any possible risk to your pet and to enable us to accomplish our mission.
We strive to perform sterilizations in a humane manner and to keep stress, pain, and the risk of complications as minimal as possible.
Our veterinarians are licensed in the State of New York. They are highly skilled and experienced in high-quality and high-volume surgical techniques. Our licensed veterinary technicians assist the veterinarians in surgery and help make sure the animals are well cared for.
Our instruments and supplies meet the highest standards. Each surgery is performed with an individually autoclaved (steam-sterilized) surgical pack.
All patients are anesthetized with safe anesthetic agents. They receive anesthetic monitoring via pulse oximetry which measures heart rate and oxygen levels.
All patients receive pain medication before surgery and prior to release. Additional pain medication is sent home only if we feel it's necessary.
