PRESS Release: Announcing the Opening of Yarmouth’s SPCA Dyke Family Animal Clinic!

Posted on: Monday, June 11th, 2018

Yarmouth, NS (June 7, 2018) – The SPCA Dyke Family Animal Clinic will be opening in Yarmouth on June 14, 2018. The Clinic will provide significant medical care for all SPCA owned animals, low cost spay & neuter surgeries to pets owned by low income families and support people caring for colonies of feral cats.

“As many in the community are aware, the Nova Scotia SPCA has been very fortunate to receive a significant financial gift from Ms. Eleanor Dyke and her family” said Elizabeth Murphy, CEO of the Nova Scotia SPCA. “In addition to the ongoing significant infrastructure improvements being made at the SPCA Yarmouth Animal Shelter, this generous donation has allowed us to bring a low cost spay & neuter service to the community of Yarmouth which will make a meaningful difference to families and their pets! Surgeries will be offered as significantly reduced rates to caregivers of feral cats, individuals who qualify for low-income support – there are rules which prohibit any vet clinic from advertising prices, but I would encourage everyone to call and enquire about the SPCA’s low cost and find out if they are eligible to have their cat or dog’s surgery through the SPCA Veterinary Services. The process is as easy as filling out an application and providing proof of income.”

The Nova Scotia SPCA couldn’t do this without the support of the veterinary community – including the Nova Scotia Veterinary Medical Association (NSVMA), rescue groups and local volunteers.
