Mobile clinics are spay/neuter facilities on wheels, and they are a valuable tool in the fight against pet overpopulation. They can bring spay/ neuter services to areas and people who have no veterinarian - there are many rural U.S. counties in the South and Midwest with no vets -or vets whose fees may not be affordable for low-income clients. Mobile clinics also provide accessibility for those people without transportation or with many animals to be altered, such as barn cats or large colonies.
Some affordable (mobile) spay programs are set up by veterinarians who want to be part of the solution to the problem of animal overpopulation, others are set up by private shelters, or by animal control programs that seek to address the pet surplus at its roots.
Mobile spay clinics can include customized vehicles or trucks, RV's, vans or mobile homes retrofitted with surgery table and light, recovery cages, anesthesia machines and autoclaves.
