ARL Spay Waggin’® provides spay/neuter surgeries, rabies vaccinations

This past week the Animal Rescue League of Boston’s (ARL) Spay Waggin’ traveled to Martha’s Vineyard to provide a number of much-needed services for pet owners within the island community.

During the day-long trip, ARL spayed or neutered nearly two dozen pets, and also participated in a rabies vaccination clinic in collaboration with Tisbury Animal Control that was able to vaccinate 23 animals.

This is ARL’s first trip to Martha’s Vineyard in several years, and given the need on the island, ARL does plan on making further trips to provide a low-cost spay/neuter option for pet owners.

“Being an island community, pet services are limited and ARL is committed to assisting more pet owners in the coming years by partnering with agencies on the island to bring services directly where they’re needed,” stated Dr. Erin Doyle, ARL’s Senior Vice President of Animal Welfare and Veterinary Services.
