ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - A new pet clinic has opened in St. Louis with the goal of reducing the number of euthanized dogs and cats in the region. Carol House Quick Fix Clinic offers spay and neutering services at very low prices.
Last year more than 50,000 cats and dogs entered shelters in St. Louis City and County and nearly half of them had to be euthanized because they were never adopted.
The building in Lafayette Square is owned by Carol House Furniture, which is allowing the clinic to use it rent free. It's a non-profit clinic and it gets most of its funding from corporate donors like Purina and private donations from the public.
Quick Fix is the only pet clinic that’s primary purpose is spaying and neutering. The clinic also works with rescue groups and offers low cost vaccinations on Saturdays.
The opening of the clinic coincides with the St. Louis Petlover Coalition's Places for Pets Week. The coalition is a network of shelters and adoption organizations throughout the metro area.
