Spay 2 Save began operations in 2012 as a way to fulfill the Spay/Neuter mission of Encore Pets, a Carteret County based non-profit animal welfare organization. With the help of the ASPCA National Spay/Neuter Mentorship Project and overwhelming support from the community, Encore Pets launched the Spay 2 Save Mobile Clinic: a new custom-built, state-of-the-art, fully-equipped 33- foot mobile surgery clinic. By spaying/neutering 25 or more cats and dogs a day, four to five days a week, Spay 2 Save can sterilize approximately 5,400 - 8,700 animals each year. We do not require income verification in order to use our services.
The Spay 2 Save Mobile Spay/Neuter Clinic provides safe and professional spay/neuter services for pet owners in need, local animal shelters, animal rescue groups, and feral or community cat caregivers. We also provide vaccinations and other services to our surgical patients the day of surgery. Spay 2 Save operates year-round and travels primarily throughout eastern North Carolina. The mobile clinic is operated by a NC-licensed veterinarian, and utilizes the most current surgical techniques, anesthesia, and equipment. Our facility has passed the North Carolina Veterinary Medical Board inspection.
The Spay 2 Save Mobile Spay/Neuter Clinic is a reality thanks to the generous support of the Brandt Animal Foundation, PetSmart Charities, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), the North Carolina Community Foundation, and many charitable donations from individuals and businesses in Carteret County and beyond. The ongoing lifesaving work of Spay 2 Save is funded through fees for services as well as supportive grants and donations.
