COLUMBIA - The Spay Neuter Project is offering discounted veterinary services Thursday from 5-7 p.m. 

The clinic will be offering a wide variety of discounted vaccinations, as well as microchipping and nail clipping services. 

Animals can get vaccinations for rabies, parvo distemper, and bordetella.

Registered Veterinary Technician Carissa Luttrell said the event is open to the public.

"There’s no restrictions or anything," Luttrell said. "Starting at five o’clock anybody can walk in and they can get vaccinations done, they can get their pets microchipped and their nails trimmed."

The vaccinations will cost 15 dollars, microchipping is 20 and nail trimming services are five dollars. 

Luttrell said the clinic holds these events to help out the local animals. 

"So, we have this event to provide these services to people that may not necessarily be able to take their pets to a full service vet clinic since they can’t afford to," Luttrell said. "So we would rather, you know, get the pets vaccinated, get them microchipped so they can get home if they get lost."

Luttrell also said it is very important to get a pet spayed or neutered. 

"The number one reason our board members opened this clinic is to prevent unwanted litters overwhelming the shelters and stuff, and being euthenized."

Luttrell said there is also behavior and health issues that can go along with not spaying or neutering an animal. 

 Alyce Cooley, The Spay Neuter Project's office manager, said she is excited for the event.

"It's very exciting to see the faces of people who come in," Cooley said. "You can tell they are happy to be able to do the right thing for their pets. We get a lot of thank you's."
