Customer Service Highlight

Last month, Animal Control Supervisor John Torrez was dispatched to catch a loose dog running on I-35. He received an update from dispatch cancelling the call because the dog was hit and killed by a car. Even though it wasn’t required of him, John continued to the location to find the deceased dog. He scanned it for a microchip, called the company for the owner’s information, and contacted the owner. John took the body to the owner so they would be able to make arrangements for their pet. Thanks to John for going above and beyond and allowing the family to have closure with their missing dog.

GTX Residents: Free Spay/Neuter Clinic for Cats

Spring is around the corner, and with spring comes kitten season!  The Georgetown Animal Shelter is again holding three free spay/neuter clinic for cats this spring – February 16, April 27, and June 22. The goal of the clinics is to reduce the cat population in Georgetown.  This is the seventh year that the shelter has offered free spay/neuter clinics for cats to help manage overpopulation in Georgetown.

Spay and neuter surgeries and rabies vaccinations will be provided at no charge. Other services available at the clinic include a combo test (feline AIDS/leukemia test) for $20, an FVRCP vaccine for $5, microchip for $10, and e-collar for $10.

Appointments are required for the free clinics, which are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Cats or kittens must be at least three months old. The clinic is offered only for cats whose owners live in the city limits of Georgetown.

Additionally, the shelter continues to offer low-cost vaccine clinics every few months, which are walk-up clinics for vaccinations only (not spay/neuter surgeries).  Dates for the shot clinics can be found at pets.georgetown.org/programs/low-cost-shots-and-neutering/.

Email animalsvc@georgetown.org or call (512) 930-3592 to schedule your cat for surgery. All spay or neuter surgeries will be done by a licensed veterinarian.

The spay and neuter clinic will be held at the City of Georgetown Animal Shelter at 110 W.L. Walden Drive near the McMaster Athletic Fields. Contact the shelter at (512) 930-3592 or by email at animalsvc@georgetown.org. The City of Georgetown Animal Shelter website is pets.georgetown.org.
