The Humane Society of Cambria County is excited to announce a partnership with Nardecchia Spay Neuter Fund as part of an effort to create a more well-rounded Community Outreach Program for animals and pet owners of Cambria County. Together, the Humane Society of Cambria County and Nardecchia Spay Neuter Fund will specifically focus on increasing local spay and neuter services.
Nardecchia Spay Neuter Fund, established in 1999, is a volunteer based non-profit organization that helps low income families across Cambria and Somerset County to spay or neuter their pets in the form of a voucher system and both mobile and in-vet spay and neuter clinics. The organization is currently focused on assisting with the cat overpopulation problem, and have helped to spay and neuter thousands of pets, strays, and community cats over the years.
On April 1st, the Humane Society of Cambria County in conjunction with Nardecchia Spay Neuter Fund will host our first ever spay and neuter clinic at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church. On site will be Dr. Theo Nelson, DVM and her Fix’N Wag’N team to perform all surgeries, administer vaccinations, and provide minor medical treatments. The clinic cost per cat is $75 and includes spay or neuter surgery, rabies and distemper vaccination, flea and tick treatment, and a nail trim. Extra vaccinations and treatments are available for an additional fee. Those interested in utilizing the clinic, must attend one of the upcoming sign-up dates and pre-pay in full to secure a spot. Owned-pet, stray, and feral cats will be accepted into the clinic.
Fix’N Wag’N is a non-profit organization that provides affordable veterinary care with a focus in preventative medicine aboard a 30-foot mobile surgical unit. Started in 2018, Fix’N Wag’N now spans from Allegheny County to Cambria County and beyond.
This year, the Humane Society of Cambria County has set out to establish more expansive animal assistance services for residents of Cambria County through a Community Outreach Program. These services include pet food assistance, vaccine and microchip clinics, and spay and neuter clinics.
