Liberty Humane Society, the animal shelter for Jersey City, Bayonne, and Hoboken, has a strict spay-neuter policy meaning all animals are altered before adoption. This is done to ease the financial and logistic burden of spay/neuter from adopters and to reduce the number of unwanted pets born through accidental litters of puppies and kittens.

Prior to the clinic opening LHS partnered with low-cost spay/neuter clinics that specialize in providing the safe and economical procedures. Since there are no other low-cost spay/neuter clinics in Hudson County, LHS was forced to transport adoptable animals 80 miles each way to the partner clinic. This placed a tremendous amount of work on shelter staff and stress on the animals in LHS care. Each time animals were sent out for surgery it required a vehicle for transport, an entire day of staff time, and stress on the animal as it recovered during the ride back.

In answer to the strain this system put on the shelter and its resources, LHS has now opened its own dedicated spay/neuter clinic. This clinic is housed in a customized RV, fully equipped, on LHS grounds. Staffed by experienced and specialized veterinarians and veterinarian technicians, the local animal shelter and animal welfare organization will now be able to spay or neuter adoptable animals on site without having to put animals, staff, or resources under unnecessary stress. The first day of operation, on Wednesday, March 25, saw the safe and effective alteration of five of the shelter’s animals.

While access to the clinic is only available for animals in the shelter’s care at this time, shelter officials hope to grow the clinic’s capacity to eventually serve other local shelters and rescues and to help in TNR efforts.
