A coalition of animal workers is planning to bring a spay-neuter clinic to the Valley. Pet owners would drop their cats and dogs off at a selected point.

The clinic would perform the operation and return the animals the next day. This project is part of Spay VA, a program sponsored by the Virginia Federation of Humane Societies.

They plan to make the clinic very affordable. The clinic will be based on a clinic run by the Humane Society in North Carolina.

"Our particular facility is a model in our part of North Carolina and we feel that model can be reproduced in other areas," says Carla Brestal of the Humane Society.

The coalition has already raised $30,000 and requested a grant from Spay VA for $90,000. They hope the clinic will be built by this May.
