announces that it has been awarded a grant in the amount of $85,000 from the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) to purchase the necessary equipment used to perform high quality, high quantity spay and neuter surgeries.
AlterClinic was accepted as a member of the National Spay/Neuter Response Team nearly 2 years ago and have been working diligently to open the Spay/Neuter Clinic in Stark County, Ohio. AlterClinic performed their first surgery on October 2, 2018 due to the generous support of this national organization.
AlterClinic is an affordable spay/neuter clinic offering these services at a reduced cost in an effort to make surgeries accessible to all animals. We hope that by offering these services we can help reduce the population of unwanted cats and dogs. We also hope to reduce the suffering homeless animals encounter while trying to survive on their own and unattended.
"This program will go a long way in helping us to serve the region with their spay and neuter needs." "There is only one way to control the overpopulation of companion animals and that is to spay or neuter your pet." said clinic spokesperson Laura Groves, Executive Director
We are grateful to the ASPCA for providing this much needed support and their continuous fight for animal rights.”

PAYMENT POLICY CHANGE:
I knew when I started AlterClinic that the tough business decisions would be difficult for me. But to continue to serve the many, requires me to make the following changes in policy. - Laura
Effective with any appointment scheduled July 1, 2019 and thereafter....
"Due to the overwhelming number of clients not calling to reschedule and missing their appointments, we have found it necessary to institute the collection of a deposit for services, at the time an appointment is made.
AlterClinic will begin to collect a deposit at the time an appointment is made. The appointment is not secure until a deposit is made.
When making an appointment we will ask for a $30.00 deposit.
The deposit will be applied toward the bill after surgery.
If due to low funding it is not feasible to make a deposit, an appointment can be made when funding is available.
Those clients who do not use credit or debit cards, may stop in to make a cash deposit.
If an appointment can not be kept and is rescheduled within 24 hours prior to the appointment, we will apply the deposit toward the bill after surgery.
If an appointment is missed with no warning or reschedule the deposit will be forfeited, and a new deposit will be necessary when another appointment is scheduled."
