The Northland Animal Welfare Society invites the public to attend an open house at the new location of its Spay Neuter Clinic in Gladstone.
The open house is 3 to 6 p.m. Sunday at 6972 N. Broadway, Gladstone.
The celebration will include tours, music by Knock Kneed Sally, refreshments, dog/cat rescue groups, free canine massages, and bob for dogs with a kiddie pool and hot dogs.
“We are so excited to be in Gladstone and the new location offers NAWS more visibility, walk-in traffic and additional phone inquiries,” said Goldie Arnold, president of NAWS. “We are able to reach more families with pets who otherwise would not have the opportunity to spay/neuter, vaccinate or microchip their pets.”
Never miss a local story.
NAWS’ goal is to reduce pet overpopulation by helping families that would not be able to spay, neuter or vaccinate their pets.
The new location also has a Pet Pantry to help customers and rescue groups with donated food. In the future, NAWS plans to add more services and a Cat Café, which will give animal lovers the opportunity to “rent” a cat while they enjoy a hot or cold drink.
Last year NAWS Spay Neuter Clinic assisted 4,500 families and completed more than 1,500 pet surgeries, 3,900 vaccinations, and 700 microchips.
