Transporting Pets: Spay and Neuter Program Makes a Difference
The East Tennessee Spay and Neuter (ETSN) recently transported its 600th pet to the Margaret B. Mitchell clinic, where dogs and cats can receive low-cost sterilization surgery. Founded in 2009 by Danika Nadzan, ETSN began with a van that could hold only 10-12 pets at a time but has now expanded to a larger bus that can transport up to 25 pets during its once-per-week route.
Nadzan and several volunteers work to keep this operation running smoothly and successfully. It takes a lot of effort to drive and clean the buses, organize pick-ups and deliveries and inform pet owners that the service exists, but they've done well and will continue to do even better with continued support and volunteers. We congratulate ETSN for the work they've done and wish them much continued success!
