Freeport Community Spay-Neuter Clinic
Freeport may seem like a long way to go but it's worth the trip for affordable spay/neutering! For pets between 8 weeks and 8 years of age. Other services available at time of surgery include vaccinations, Advantage, and FELV/FIV tests for cats, vaccinations, Advantage, and heartworm tests for dogs. Visit the Community Clinic website for futher information. Ensure your pet a longer healthier life and help prevent the overpopulation that results in so many shelter killings and suffering strays.
When It's Hot
When hot weather is upon us, please take extra care to keep your pets healthy. If you have outdoor animals, make sure that they always have access to shade and drinking water. Make sure indoor pets also have access to cool areas and plenty of fresh water to drink.
NEVER leave any pet locked in a vehicle in the sun, even if the weather seems cool. The interior can quickly heat up and suffocate your pet (40 degree increase in less than 10 minutes). If you see an animal in a locked car, even if the windows are open a crack, notify the local police or animal control officer. In Maine, the law allows these officials to remove any animal from a hot car. This includes EMTs and firefighters. Read more about outdoor pet care.
