Liz Skrobisch Executive Director of Ocean State Animal Coalition (OSAC) says the Rhode Island Community Spay/Neuter Clinic will complete 50,000 surgeries before July. 

OSAC opened the RI Community Spay/Neuter Clinic in Warwick in July 2010. 

Skrobisch says the staff routinely performs 40-50 surgeries per day. 

The goal of the clinic, Skrobisch says, is to provide low-cost but high-quality spay/neuter services to help prevent the birth of unplanned litters of dogs and cats.

Reaching 50,000 surgeries is a significant milestone, and Skrobisch says it means everything.

“It means we’re on the path. It doesn’t mean we’re done,” Skrobisch says, “we have a long way to go.”

She says cat overpopulation is still a concerning issue in Rhode Island, and much of their focus at the clinic is on free roaming cats.

“I think we’re making a difference,” Skrobisch says, “I know in certain communities we’re making a real dent. In Woonsocket and Central Falls, we’re reaching a real population of people.”
