FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE November 29, 2017
PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, VIRGINIA . . . Spaying or neutering of pets helps improve the quality of life of our pets and our community. Toward that end, the Prince William County Animal Shelter advises residents that a spay/neuter transport will be held on Friday, Dec. 8, 2017.
Saint Seton's Orphaned Animals "Neuter Scooter" will be picking up cats and dogs at 7 a.m. on December 8th from the Animal Shelter parking lot located at 14807 Bristow Road in Manassas (20112). The animals will be safely transported to Loving Touch Animal Hospital in Fredericksburg for the procedures. The mobile unit will return the pets to the Animal Shelter parking lot at 6:30 p.m. for owner pick up.
All dogs are required to have a heartworm test. If your dog has heartworms the doctor cannot perform surgery as this could be fatal. The hospital also requires a pre-anesthesia panel and IV catheter for pets over the age of seven years, to make sure your senior pet can process the anesthesia before performing surgery. There are costs associated with these requirements so if your pet already has vaccines and a heartworm test, please have your vet fax the records to Loving Touch Animal Hospital prior to the day.
