NEW RELEASES

HORRY COUNTY ANIMAL CARE CENTER TO OPEN LOW-COST SPAY/NEUTER CLINIC

Conway, South Carolina – The Horry County Animal Care Center will begin its low-cost spay and neuter clinic to local pet owners on Tuesday, August 9. The benefits of spaying and neutering pet dogs and cats are numerous and include preventing health problems, decreasing the chances of a pet running away and helping to decrease the number of unwanted pregnancies and, therefore, the number of unwanted animals in our local shelters.

This new program is open to all residents in Horry County for spaying and neutering of pet dogs and cats. Residents who meet federal “low-income” guidelines and/or on government assistance may be eligible to receive even lower costs. Pet owners will be able to schedule an appointment for surgery, Monday through Friday from 1-4:30 p.m. in person at the Horry County Animal Care Center located at 1932 Industrial Park Road in Conway or by calling (843) 915-5172. A complete copy of the program guidelines are below.

The costs for cats is $50 and $80 for dogs. The special pricing for government assistance residents is $20 for cats and $40 for dogs.

For more information, contact the Horry County Animal Care Center at 843-915-5172, follow them on Facebook, or visit their website at http://www.horrycounty.org/Departments/AnimalCareCenter.

To help homeless animals in Horry County find loving homes, the Animal Care Center will offer discounted adoptions the first Friday and Saturday of each month.  Potential adopters are encouraged to visit and spend time with the animal they are interested in.  All of the animals are already spayed or neutered and have their shots up to date, however younger animals may need to be returned later to have shots and/or spay/neutering done.  The paperwork is easy and only takes a few minutes to fill out.  Adoption fees are discounted and typically include spaying/neutering, vaccines, heartworm or leukemia testing, heartworm and flea preventative, intestinal parasite treatment and microchipping.  Qualifying new pet parents also get 30-days free pet health insurance and coupons from local pet businesses. 

To view the animals currently available for adoption or for more information on the monthly vaccination clinics, contact the Horry County Animal Care Center at 843-915-5172, follow us on Facebook, or visit our website at http://www.horrycounty.org/depts/pubsafety/AdoptAnimals.asp.
