ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) A new place for animals in Anchorage, the Alaska SPCA opened its doors to a new clinic Sunday.
With operating rooms, imaging technology and other equipment, staff said the expanded services veterinary clinic allows them to help pet owners with preventative care while offering even more services.
"For a lot people animals are their children and they provide unconditional love and they’re there during hard times and they deserve just as much care as people," Pamela Meadors, Director of clinic operations said.
"If we’re able to help animals and alleviate some of that cost and some of that burden than people are more able to help their kids and just to provide the care for their animals they so desperately want to provide," she said.
Meadors said the clinic performs up to two dozen spays and neuters on cats, dogs and rabbits each day.
The organization is largely funded through donations and sales from the Alaska SPCA thrift shop.
