In order to help control the cat population in the City of Knox, Public Vet’s “neuter scooter” will be in the area next week. Despite the name of the mobile clinic, they also provide spaying services as well.
At Tuesday night’s Knox City Council meeting, Mayor Dennis Estok announced that they’ll be in town on Tuesday, November 20th. He also reminded members and meeting attendees that the exact location of the mobile clinic is not revealed until online registration is completed.
Once online registration is complete, owners are given their arrival time, the location of the clinic and all pre-surgery and transporting instructions.
According to a flier provided by the Mayor’s Office, Public Vet is a non-profit corporation dedicated to stopping animal suffering and neglect by promoting responsible animal welfare practices, healthy animal companionships and assisting communities with well-managed cat populations.
The cost per cat is $50 for a domesticated cat. Other services such as rabies vaccinations, flea and ear mite treatment and de-worming are also available for an additional fee.
If a cat is determined to be feral by Neuter Scooter Staff, the cost is $20. If you intend to bring in any feral cats, which are animals that are wild, not just cats that simply live outdoors, visit the organization’s website for more information.
Registration can be completed online at NeuterScooter.com. If you have any additional questions, contact the Mayor’s Office at 574-772-4553.
