Providing low-cost surgeries to local residents.
The Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe, the Town of Truckee Animal Services and participating vets have combined forces to provide a low cost Community Spay and Neuter Program. Through this program, local residents who require financial assistance can obtain low-cost spay or neuter surgeries for their dogs and cats at local veterinary clinics.

Florida-Gainesville-Alachua Countyhttp://www.stfrancishousepetcare.org/directions.htmSt. Francis House Pet Care Clinic
413 S Main Street
Gainesville FL 32601.
email@example.comThe Clinic is open Tuesdays from noon to 2 pm. No appointment is needed. Clients sign up when they arrive and are called when their turn comes. http://www.stfrancishousepetcare.org/about.htmThe St. Francis House Pet Care Clinic is a walk-in facility that operates in quarters provided by St. Francis House, a Gainesville homeless shelter.
Kent Vann, Director of the shelter, supported the project from the beginning and cleared space at the back of the building for clinic operations. From noon until 2 pm every Tuesday, experienced veterinarians report to the clinic, assisted by junior and senior veterinary students taking the elective shelter medicine rotation at the University of Florida. For sterilization surgery, animals are transported to the College of Veterinary Medicine on SW 20th Ave. Under Dr. Isaza's guidance, the students perform about fifty spay-neuter operations weekly — ten to fifteen of them on pets referred by the St. Francis House Pet Care Clinic. Other surgery requiring the expertise of veterinary faculty is also provided when needed.
Until September 2007, the St. Francis House Pet Care Clinic was just a dream. Dale Kaplan-Stein, Gainesville veterinarian, and Chris Machen, community animal advocate, were searching for a way to get veterinary care to the pets of homeless and low-income residents of Alachua County.
They wanted to develop a plan that would include free spay-neuter services for residents who couldn't afford them.
When Dr. Kaplan-Stein and Ms. Machen joined forces with Dr. Natalie Isaza, Director of the new Shelter Medicine Program at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, they were able to make the dream a reality. The clinic now offers free spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, heartworm and flea preventive drugs, and treament for sickness or injury to the pets of over five hundred local residents. http://www.stfrancishousepetcare.org/services.htmAll services and goods are provided at no charge and include the following:
