Volusia County, FL- Volusia County Animal Services is now accepting appointments for
January at its new spay/neuter clinic located at 1250 Indian Lake Road,
Daytona Beach. The state-of-the-art clinic will provide low-cost and
reduced-fee animal sterilization to residents of unincorporated areas of
Volusia County and the cities of DeLand and South Daytona. Services at
the new spay/neuter clinic are by appointment only.

Residents seeking low-cost pet spaying and neutering must show proof of
public assistance, such as a Medicaid, Women, Infants and Children (WIC)
or food stamp identification card. Residents must also show proof of
income and meet income eligibility guidelines, which are based on the
number of people in the household and the annual household income.
Prices range from $15 to $65 and are based on income. Residents who do
not meet the criteria for the guidelines will be referred to another
low-cost spay/neuter program.

Services at the new clinic include spay and neuter surgeries, rabies
vaccinations, and county licenses for owners of pets who live in
unincorporated Volusia County and the cities of DeLand and South
Daytona. Residents with cats that are spayed or neutered under the
county Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR), Free Roaming Cat (FRC) and Return To
Field (RTF) programs will also receive a feline distemper vaccination
and ear-tipping in addition to the rabies vaccination.

With the opening of the new spay/neuter clinic, the mobile Pet Vet
Cruiser will continue to provide services throughout the county,
visiting alternative areas once a week. In fiscal year 2015-2016, the
Pet Vet Cruiser performed 2,888 surgeries. With the implementation of
the new clinic, Animal Services anticipates performing more than 3,000
surgeries annually.

In January, the Pet Vet Cruiser will be at the following locations:
