Low Cost Spay Neuter Clinic now open in Brownsburg

(Continued)

Sollenberger said a complete list of services and pricing is available at the clinic’s website at www.lowcostclinic.org, under the tab “Services/Prices.”

The first day of surgery at the new facility was Oct. 3 and Sollenberger said 45 to 55 surgeries are being done each day.

This clinic is the second for Sollenberger, with the first one opening in January 2007 in Noblesville.

At the Noblesville clinic, she said they are up to 76,000 surgeries total.

Sollenberger said one of the main reasons she chose to expand to Hendricks County is the population growth.

“The reason that I chose Hendricks County is because, first of all, the population is growing,” she said. “Whenever you have a population growth, you do have more animals coming into your community. With the increase of the population and the increase of animals, people need a resource where they can afford to get the spay/neuter surgery done or be able to purchase their flu medicines or their heartworm medicines — get low cost vaccines. They need that sort of resource so that they can save their money for the last two years of an animal’s life, (which) is going to cost the most money and they need a private practice for them, for illnesses or injuries, those sorts of things.”

She said the other reason has to do with some of the problems the county has as a whole in dealing with animals.

“The other reason in choosing Hendricks County is for the most part, you’ve just got one shelter here,” Sollenberger said. “It’s Hendricks County Animal Care and Control, and that is improving. It’s now not called Hendricks County Animal Care and Control and it looks like there’s a lot of progress in running that as a successful shelter. I think it’s another component to make this a better community for animals.”

Sollenberger said she also encourages pet owners to have a private practice veterinarian.

“We don’t know a lot of the vets yet here in Hendricks County, but we do want to have a good relationship with our local private practices so that we can refer people,” she said.
