Our on-site vet clinic will be hosting the next MASS ANIMAL FUND day on Tuesday May 8th here at the clinic www.sterlingshelterclinic.
The Mass Animal Fund dedicates a significant portion of its funds to helping low-income residents who receive assistance through state programs (TAFDC, SSI, VS, SNAP, WIC, etc.) obtain spay/neuter surgery for companion animals free of charge through the Spay/Neuter Voucher Program.
Massachusetts residents interested in participating in this program should contact their local animal control officer. Contact information for municipal animal control officers can be found here http://massanimalfund.com/
NO REQUESTS MADE DIRECTLY FROM RESIDENTS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
Residents who have already received a voucher from their animal control officer can have their dogs/cats spayed or neutered at our shelters onsite vet clinic.

WHY SPAY or NEUTER YOUR PET? Just this week our shelter had a cat that was surrendered named Molly…. sadly Molly came in as a stray with a mass in her abdomen. Our shelter vet removed the mass and sent it out to be biopsied and sadly Molly was diagnosed with an aggressive form of mammary cancer 🙁
This type of cancer was related to hormones from NOT being spayed early in life.
Mammary cancer in cats is aggressive and can spread quickly throughout their body.
Thankfully Molly was adopted on Sunday April 21st to a wonderful loving family who we can’t thank enough…..
But it is cases like this that are so preventable simply by having your dog/cat spayed/neutered EARLY in life.
We recommend having your pet/s spayed or neutered at 12 weeks or 2 lbs. Our clinic specializes in high quality, early age spay and neuter…. not only does this prevent cancers – but also unwanted behaviors such as marking, roaming, humping, aggression and a variety of other issues that pet owners do not want.
