Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic for Escambia County opens next month

Pensacola Humane Society reports Pensacola is on its way to becoming a no-kill community with the dedication of the Barbara Grice Memorial Spay & Neuter Clinic at the Pensacola Humane Society on May 18. The public is invited to attend from 11 am–12:30 pm for a ribbon cutting, brief remarks, light refreshments and a tour of the clinic building at 5 North Q Street.

Executive Director Sarah Humlie stated, in a press release, that the project was the dream of the late Barbara Grice, former board president and dedicated volunteer of the Humane Society, who was determined to find a solution for the problem of pet overpopulation in our area by providing spay and neuter services at reduced rates.

A Pensacola Bay Area Impact 100 grant provided the equipment for the Barbara Grice Memorial Spay & Neuter Clinic was provided by a generous grant from the women of Pensacola Bay Area Impact 100.
