With three licensed veterinarians on staff, ARL pets are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before adoption. Thanks to additional grant funding, the ARL provides public spay and neuter programs that offer surgeries, vaccines and/or microchips at low or no cost to individuals who could not otherwise afford those services, as funding and space is available. These surgeries are performed by the ARL and partner veterinarians.
