Non-profit spay, neuter clinics to stay open


Non-profit spay and neuter clinics in Alabama will be able to keep their doors open after a state board rejected proposed changes on where people can get the procedure done for their pets.

The Alabama State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners made the decision Wednesday after a protest was held at a public hearing on the proposed rule change.

The rule the board rejected would have prohibited non-veterinarians from hiring veterinarians and would prohibit non-veterinarians, including nonprofit groups, from owning veterinarian equipment.
