Three veterinarians and a group of sponsors have joined forces to alleviate the problem of cat overpopulation. "Operation Fix-It" is a one-day spay and neuter clinic for domestic and feral cats belonging to low-income cat guardians. The clinic takes place tomorrow at the Humane Society of the Black Hills.
All Creatures Veterinary Hospital, Country Cats, and students in the Veterinarian Technician Program at National American University will be donating their skills and medical supplies for the project. Dr. Dean Falcon with All Creatures Veterinary Hospital says, "I think the biggest thing that's most important with this project is to keep in mind that it's all of us coming together as a team through the Rapid City and surrounding area to try to do this and make a difference. Our goal is to try and cut back on the amount of animals that are breeding, period. You know, that's the goal of every veterinarian, every vet tech, anybody that's involved in our profession with animals." Interested individuals must be pre-qualified by phone, call 593-5549 to schedule an appointment.
