Free Spay Neuter For Hunterdon County Cats & Dogs

UPDATE: MAY 19, 2016

DIRECTIONS TO THE CLINIC: The mobile clinic will be located next to the Animal Technologies Building on the Hunterdon County Polytech Campus, Junction Road, Flemington, NJ (Near Hunterdon Central H.S.) The best access for drop off and pick up is from Walter E. Foran Blvd. At the traffic light by the entrance to Raritan Town Square Shopping Center (Lowes & Walmart) turn to go toward HCRHS and Polytech. Continue to the "T" intersection and turn right onto Junction Road. Go approximately 600 ft. and turn left into the parking lot. (There will be signs to the clinic with the "Blueprint: Spay Neuter" logo on them.) Click here for a map showing navigation thru the parking lots on the Polytech Campus to the drop off & pick up area in the gravel lot.

UPDATE: MAY 10, 2016

We have responded to everyone who sent us a request prior to the closing of registrations. However, we are still waiting to hear back from some, so that we can confirm all spots at this free clinic. If we do not get a response by this Friday, May 13th we will consider the reservation cancelled and will offer the spot to the next person on our waiting list.

UPDATE: APRIL 29, 2016

The response has been overwhelming! We are sorry, but we cannot accept any additional registrations at this time. Within the first 36 hours, requests have greatly exceeded our limit of 25 sterilizations. Stay tuned as we work to find ways to help everyone who has contacted us. The need is great right here in our own county; it is clear that we need to repeat this initiative as soon as resources allow.


 

We've put together an exciting collaboration to help the animals of Hunterdon County! The People For Animals Mobile Veterinary Clinic will be coming to Hunterdon County Polytech Animal Technologies to perform 25 spays or neuters. These sterilizations will be funded by harnesslife.org through our Spay-Neuter Fund.

It's a triple win - we are working together to prevent unwanted litters in Hunterdon, the 25 surgeries are FREE, and the Animal Technologies students will experience a mobile veterinary clinic in action.

    • Hello Jean! Thanks for your interest in this clinic. Please check your email for some additional information that I have just sent to you.

        • Hi Jean! We kept trying to get in touch with you for the May 23rd clinic and sent several emails! Unfortunately, that one-day clinic is done. We may be doing a similar clinic in the fall or winter, so stay tuned!

    • Hi Alexis, I’ve just double-checked and we never received an email from you (and there was nothing in the spam folder.) Did you send your request to register@harnesslife.org per the instructions in our blog post? We will put your name on our wait list and get back to you for specifics if a spot becomes available. All 25 spots have been filled in this clinic. So sorry.
