Precious Paws Rescue Low Cost Spay and Neuter Program
Started in March 2012 with the support and cooperation of the Floral City Veterinary Hospital, the goal of this program is to reduce the number of homeless and unwanted animals in the Citrus County Community. Starting in February 2013 the Midway Animal Hospital in Homosassa has joined this program.
The procedure for the pet owner is to purchase a voucher for the desired procedure and select the veterinary office for the surgery. The pet owner then makes their appointment for the spay or neuter surgery and takes the pet and the voucher for the procedure on the selected date.
This program is funded by discounted surgical rates from both Midway Animal Hospital and Floral City Veterinary Hospital, voucher purchase by the pet owner with the remainder of the charges paid for by Precious Paws Rescue with donated monies.
Voucher fee for a cat spay is $20.00 and a cat neuter is $10.00 at both veterinary facilities. The fees for dogs are based on their weight and range from $25.00 to $75.00. The voucher covers the full cost of the surgical procedure at both facilities. Any extra services requested are the responsibility of the pet owner and must be paid for at the time of service to the veterinary provider.
Vouchers can be purchased at the Precious Paws Rescue Adoption Center in the Crystal River Mall Thursday through Sunday from 12 noon to 4PM. Greta’s Touch Grooming and Doggie Day Care at 7360 S. Florida Ave in Floral City also sells PPR vouchers Monday through Friday during regular store hours.
