TCAP Arlington Coming January 2021
Construction is underway at TCAP’s eighth North Texas spay and neuter clinic in Arlington. We are excited to kick off 2021 by expanding access to low-cost veterinary wellness services to residents in the Arlington area.
“We are thrilled to open our next TCAP location in Arlington,” said Stacey Schumacher, TCAP Executive Director. “We have been visiting the Arlington community for more than 15 years providing monthly vaccine and spay and neuter events at the city’s shelter, but the need for low-cost pet care in the community is greater than we are able to service at those periodic monthly events. This new location will expand access to affordable pet wellness services in an area where other low-cost options are not currently available.”
TCAP’s new clinic is currently under construction at 2400 SE Green Oaks Blvd. The 3,600 square foot facility will provide spay and neuter surgeries by appointment on Mondays and Fridays and walk-in vaccines on Fridays from 9 a.m.- 12 p.m. TCAP will work to expand to more operational days in the coming months.
Previously, TCAP traveled to Arlington Animal Services three times each month for low-cost vaccine events and twice monthly for spay and neuter events in the shelter’s community room. This permanent clinic location will allow TCAP to increase the number of pets they can sterilize in Arlington by 89 percent – meaning this location has the ability to potentially spay and neuter 6,240 pets each year.
“Our mission is to end animal overpopulation in North Texas animal shelters,” Schumacher said. “We can’t accomplish that goal by promoting adoption alone. We must spay and neuter pets, and with the cost of living increasing, these routine surgeries can be out of reach for some pet owners. Our new clinic will allow us the opportunity to expand our reach and serve more North Texas pets than ever before.”
Free rabies vaccines will be offered to cats and dogs at TCAP’s Arlington clinic from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. every Friday in February 2021.
