Northwest Spay & Neuter Center, formerly known as Coalition: HUMAnE Spay & Neuter Clinic, has moved to a new location in Tacoma.
The new clinic site, which opened in January, triples the non-profit’s space and allows the staff to perform up to 30,000 surgeries annually.
The organization performs surgery on companion cats, dogs, and rabbits, as well as feral/free-roaming cats.
With more than 11,000 surgeries completed in 2012 alone, Northwest Spay & Neuter Center has quickly become recognized as the leading high-volume, high-quality spay and neuter provider in the region, and a powerful force working to end pet overpopulation in Washington State.
Animals altered at Northwest Spay & Neuter Center can receive vaccines, microchips and parasite treatment at the time of surgery- all at costs well below standard veterinary prices, according to its press release.
Individuals with limited income can also take advantage of further subsidized surgery specials run throughout the year and assistance programs run through partner organizations.
The clinic estimates that as a result of the services it offers, the births of more than 365,000 animals have been prevented since it opened its doors in 2008.
Northwest Spay & Neuter Center is credited with reducing the killing rates of healthy, adoptable animals in Pierce County by 40 percent in that time.
While many of the organization’s clients are local, the clinic have altered animals from 24 counties in Washington, and even had clients bring their pets from out of state.
The new building will accommodate plans to expand services to even more pet owners. The clinic plans to start a transportation program in 2013, reaching out to individuals in rural Pierce County and surrounding counties who need assistance bringing their animals to the clinic.
The clinic is located at 6401 Pacific Ave. in Tacoma.
