Animal group seeks volunteers to assist with spay/neuter clinic

FRANKFORT — The Madison County Humane Society/Animal League for Life is reaching out to the community for help with its low-cost spay and neuter clinic.

The clinic, which operates at the HS/ALL adoption center at 128-C Big Hill Avenue, has spayed or neutered more than 2,000 dogs and cats since it opened in July 2012, according to volunteer Lynn Grove.

The clinic needs more volunteers to help on days it operates, which are on Mondays.

Under the guidance of a licensed veterinarian, about 12 volunteers take in 35 cats and dogs on clinic days, prepare them for surgery, assist during surgery, administer vaccines and tend to the animals as they awake, Grove said. No experience is needed.

Other volunteer positions also are available with HS/ALL, including daily feeding and cleaning as well as socialization, Grove said.

An orientation session for those interested in volunteering is 4 p.m. Sunday at the adoption center, which is in the building between Modern Dry Cleaners and Madison Drug Store. For more details, call Grove at 200-6142.

Anyone interested in having a pet neutered or spayed at the clinic may call 626-5600.

Hours for those interested in adopting pets from HS/ALL are Saturdays from noon to 5 p.m.
