Dr. Hannah and Phoenix, after his castration

Save A Forgotten Equine (SAFE), in partnership with Equine Aid and Northwest Equine Stewardship Center (NWESC), will be funding a low-cost equine castration clinic for qualified applicants on March 5th, 2011.  Dr. Hannah Evergreen and Dr. Kelli Taylor will be generously donating their time and hosting this event at the NWESC facility in Monroe, with assistance provided by vet students.  The participant cost is $50 per castration and includes the procedure and medications.  (Horses will be checked on after the procedure and discharged by the veterinarian after a few hours for recovery, barring any complications.  Any follow-up appointments are not included). A limited number of stalls for before and after care are available for $10/day.  Applications are currently being accepted and applicants will be notified prior to the event if their application was accepted.  Applicant approval is based on financial need/circumstances and all colts/stallions must be halter broke, in good health, with both testicles descended, and provide proof of current Tetanus vaccination or vaccination will be required for an additional cost.
