Taxi your pet to be spayed in Williston

MIDDLEBURY – Homeward Bound, Addison County’s Humane Society, is partnering with Vermont Spay/Neuter (VSN), a low-cost clinic housed at Affectionately Cats in Williston, to provide pet owners with access to affordable spay/neuter services for cats. The clinic is offered on Wednesdays. Homeward Bound has arranged to transport cats from Addison County on July 17 and Aug. 7.
With the free transport, cats in need of being spayed or neutered will be taken to Affectionately Cats for the procedure The cat taxi is able to hold up to 10 cats per trip. The fee for each spay/neuter is $75/per cat.
Vermont Spay/Neuter aims to reduce the number of unwanted animals in the region. Spaying females and neutering males is currently the most humane and effective means known to achieve this goal. By working with local humane societies, rescue groups, and individuals, VSN hopes to be able to reach out and serve a large population of animals in the region not currently receiving this care.
How the “Taxi Cat” service works:
•  Payment is cash only to Homeward Bound (total amount must equal requested services).
•  All paperwork must be completed and turned in with payment prior to day of drop off service.
•  A crate label to fill out and tape to the cat’s crate for drop off will be distributed.
•  Drop-off is at 7:15 a.m. and pick-up is at 5:15 p.m.; if cats are not retrieved by 5:30 p.m., they will stay overnight at Homeward Bound for $20 plus an additional $10/hour for every hour the cat is at the shelter past 9 a.m. the next day.
•  The cat’s crate must be lined with newspaper or other disposable material, which will be thrown out at the end of the day.
•  Homeward Bound is just a taxi service and fee collector; all questions must be directed to 802-866-2296
