The JSPCA joined SpayIsrael to create a low cost clinic in our shelter several years ago. In an effort to decrease the number of sray and homeless animals in and around Jerusalem we opened a small clinic which offers low cost sterilization for pets and even lower cost for street cats. the cats are trapped at the request of feeders and returned to the same spot. we trap and neuter between 1000-2000 cats every year, thus greatly helping struggling feeders who spend more and more on food and vet bills and find themselves unable to pay the high price of surgery in a private clinic. A low cost clinic also brings in people with pets who might otherwise allow their dog/cat to breed and give away or dispose of the litters. This is the major cause of the tragic situation we find ourselves in and this clinic is our answer.
