Owners Can Have Stallions Castrated and Checked by a Veterinarian at No Cost
Saturday, October 28, 2017 - Mobile Clinic at Farms and Strip Jobs in Breathitt, Perry, Knott and Surrounding Counties
The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) is partnering with the Kentucky Equine Humane Center (KyEHC), the Kentucky Horse Council (KHC) and the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) to offer a free gelding and wellness clinic for stallions in Eastern Kentucky. These clinics are made possible by funding and support from the ASPCA.
The mobile clinic will take place Saturday, Oct. 28, 2018, and will be servicing individual farms and strip jobs in Breathitt, Perry, Knott and surrounding counties.
In addition to gelding, services include Coggins testing, health certificates, vaccinations, de-worming and dental services—which will be provided as needed. This service is limited to the first 50 stallions signed up.
“We are excited to offer another free gelding and wellness clinic to stallions in the area,” said Lori Redmon, KHS President & CEO. “We feel fortunate to have this opportunity to build relationships with our horse community and provide support to as many horses as we can. We hope that folks take advantage of this free, to-your-door service.”
All participating stallions must be caught at the time of appointment, halter broke, in good health and have two descended testicles. To qualify for all services, all horses must be registered and scheduled prior to the clinic. No income verification is required, however preference is given to low-income households of $35,000 per year or less.
Owners can register their stallions by going by calling 502-515-3141 or emailing [email protected].
