Can't get your pet to the vet to be spayed or neutered?

Contact Altered Tails, a Barnhart Clinic, at 1-800-253-WAGS (9247) about their W.A.G.S. (Wheels for Animals Getting Spayed) vehicle!  This is a special vehicle that comes into your neighborhood and picks up your cats and dogs to transport them to the Altered Tails spay/neuter clinic.  The pets are returned to the pickup location the same afternoon.  The transport is FREE and the spay/neuter is FREE!  There is limited space and appointments are necessary, so call as soon as possible!


Besides controlling the pet population, sterilized animals are healthier and live longer!  Get your pet sterilized!
