Grant brings subsidized spay/neuter to Frogtown

Sterilization services are brought to a neighborhood in need

In June, Kindest Cut began offering subsidized spay/neuter services for pets of qualified low-income animal owners in the Frogtown/Thomas-Dale neighborhood of St. Paul, through a grant from PetSmart Charities®.

Kindest Cut is visiting the neighborhood weekly, either with its mobile unit or offering pet transportation to the Melrose Animal Clinic.

“We learned that residents in this area are typically utilizing very few animal care services,” says Corrie Schueller, AHS director of supporting programs. ”Spay/neuter was identified as a priority, but there is so little access to these services and they are often too expensive. This effort will help us reach Frogtown residents with services their pets need.”

Owners of pets who participate in the program are asked to make a copay of $10 per household, although no one will be denied an appointment because of an inability to pay.

“Our goal is to sterilize two-thirds of domestic dogs and cats in the neighborhood,” says Dr. Kruck, ”That would make a substantial impact on the number of unwanted litters and homeless animals in the area.”

The grant will run for two years.
