Free Mobile Gelding Clinic for Stallions Oct 28

Horse owners in Breathitt, Perry, Knott and Letcher counties can have their stallions castrated by a veterinarian for free on Saturday, October 28, 2017. The veterinarian will come to the horse owner’s property to perform the surgery.

This service is provided by the Kentucky Humane Society, with funding from the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) and the Kentucky Horse Council

In addition to castration, stallions can receive free Coggins testing, de-worming and teeth floats as needed. This service is limited to the first 50 stallions signed up.

“With this free mobile clinic, we’ll come to you, so there’s no need to transport the stallions to a veterinarian,” said Tammy Noble, director of Kentucky River Regional Animal Shelter in Hazard, who is assisting with the clinic. “We hope many horse owners will take advantage of this free, to-you-door service.”

All stallions must be caught and with an experienced handler at the time of appointment. Stallions must be in good health and have two dropped testicles. To qualify for services, all horses must be registered and scheduled before October 23, 2017. No background check and no income verification, but priority will be given to low-income households.

Owners can register their stallions by going by calling 502-515-3143 or emailing [email protected].
