Animal Care League opens Spay-Neuter Clinic for Rabbits

Animal Care League Announces Low Cost Spay and Neuter Clinic for Rabbits With Exotic Animal Veterinarian Susan A. Brown, DVM

The Animal Care League will now have a low cost spay and neuter clinic for pet rabbits once a month and are honored to be working with exotic animal veterinarian, Susan A. Brown, DVM, known for her pioneering veterinary work with rabbits and other exotic pets for the past 35 years.

Tom Van Winkle, Executive Director of the Animal Care League states, "Rabbits are the 3rd most popular pet in the United States and there is a growing demand for affordable spay and neuter surgeries for them. We are proud to be the first shelter in the area offering this service to our community."

Besides controlling the pet overpopulation crisis, there are other important reasons for getting your pet rabbit altered:

  • Up to 80% of female rabbits that are not spayed can develop uterine cancer.
  • Altered rabbits are easier to litter-box train.
  • Altered rabbits tend to be less aggressive towards each other and can be bonded more easily.

    The first two clinic dates have been set:

    Wednesday, March 16
    Sunday, April 10

    The cost is $50 for neuters (boys) and $75 for spays (girls) and includes a full examination before the surgery. There is limited space each month and appointments must be made in advance by calling the Animal Care League at 708-848-8155.
