The University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine has officially opened its new mobile spay/neuter clinic.
“We look forward to a time when a lack of available locations where people can get their pets spayed and neutered is a thing of the past,” said Karen Walsh, a field program manager with PetSmart Charities Inc.
The charity made the unit possible with a $260,485 grant.
The 36-foot unit includes three surgery tables, holding cages and an oxygenizer.
