The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society’s spay/neuter services have resumed limited operations. We are taking a careful, strategic approach to be as safe, yet efficient as possible.
Our immediate focus will be on providing spay/neuter procedures to animals awaiting adoption. For their health and well-being, we are working to prepare them to find loving homes as quickly as possible. Procedures will be offered to the public at the earliest booking availability.
In order to safely re-open, we have had to reduce the number of team members on site at any given time, which impacts the number of procedures that can be performed daily. This adjustment was needed to reduce the potential exposure to COVID-19. We will continue to keep our clients updated, as well as provide alternative resources should they need to take their animals elsewhere for an earlier appointment date.
By introducing a careful, phased-in approach, we can continue to prioritize the health and safety of our staff, clients, community, and the animals entrusted to our care, while also balancing the need to reduce pet overpopulation. We will continue to follow the recommendations of the province, public health officials and veterinary organizations, and will adjust where necessary as the pandemic evolves.
We appreciate the public’s patience during these unprecedented times, and we look forward to continuing to serve our communities.
