WALKER COUNTY, Ga. (WDEF) – Pet owners in Walker County can now schedule an appointment for their dog or cat to be picked up at the Walker County Civic Center campus by the Agriculture building, transported to a clinic for surgery, and then returned the next day.
One low cost, spay/neuter organization will start offering these transport services once again to Chattanooga outlying areas.
Wally’s Friends, a non-profit in Hamilton County is dedicated to high-quality, high-volume, low-cost spay/neuter for dogs and cats in response to pet overpopulation. They have spayed or neutered over 100,000 pets.
The next transport takes place in Walker County on Monday, May 1st.
Appointments are required to use this service and can be made by calling 423-877-9966.
Walker County Animal Shelter Director Alison Smith says “We’re really grateful Wally’s Friends is set up to transport in North Georgia once again. Their presence will help reduce the overpopulation of pets in our community. The intake numbers at the shelter should dramatically decrease with the partnership Wally’s Friends provides.”
Each Wally’s Friends transport can carry 20 to 45 animals, depending on their size.
Spay services run $60 for dogs and $48 for cats.
Neuter services cost $55 for dogs and $40 for cats.
A flat $5 round-trip fee will be charged for transport.
Wally’s Friends offers additional services, including vaccines and nail trimming, for a nominal fee.
