Now What's Up?...
After closing our Spay/Neuter financial assistance program in late 2022 are working hard to re-open the low-cost Major Michael Shipley Memorial Spay and Neuter Clinic in Cookeville, TN. For six years, we were a classic pet rescue; we then transitioned from a Pet Rescue to an Advocacy Organization for Spay / Neuter in 2010. In this change of focus, we provided financial assistance vouchers for Spay / Neuter for another 12 years. In those years we rescued and placed over 3,500 animals and helped over 15,000 dogs and cats get "fixed". In early 2023, we learned of an opportunity to use our organization to re-establish the low-cost clinic in Cookeville, and jumped on it. When the clinic is back open, Wags and Whiskers will have financial assistance for spay/neuter at the clinic.
Clinic Update... (3/8/23) The clinic just passed the state inspection. They are taking appointment requests via e-mail (address below). (3/1/23) We have the clinic building, equipment and most of the supplies ready to open soon. We are working on getting the required TN Veterinary Premisis Permit issued and getting the facility ready for inspection and use. The new clinic website is now "up" Here. Our clinic main Facebook page is now Here. A new clinic telephone number has been set up. The new clinic logo is shown above. There are several fundraising activities in the planning stage. Things are really moving along, but there is not a target date for the public re-opening of the clinic.
