Thank You MSU’s Veterinary Program for making Hope Animal Sanctuary’s Spay & Neuter Day a Huge Success!

On Tuesday, October 5 Dr. Bushby and his team of veterinary students and technicians from Mississippi State University (MSU) rolled into Hope Animal Sanctuary (HAS) with their mobile veterinary clinic for another busy spay/neuter day. On this day the team from MSU would alter six cats and twenty dogs, most of whom were from HAS, although MSU was able to help the Cleveland, Ms. animal shelter by including seven of their dogs. They also neutered a kitten who was brought in by HAS volunteer Billy Halfacre – a kitten he’d found abandoned.

The MSU team has been coming to Hope Animal Sanctuary once a month for the past couple of years. However, Dr. Bushby just informed us that the team would now come every three weeks instead, because of our extremely high animal save rate.

We are truly grateful to Dr. Bushby and his team from MSU. Without their help and support we wouldn’t be able to save nearly as many animals as we do.
