Dr. Hannah and Phoenix, after his castration

PLEASE NOTE: Friday May 27 is the last day we will be accepting applications for the June 4 Gelding Clinic. You may still submit applications for the August and October clinics. 

Save A Forgotten Equine (SAFE), in partnership with Equine Aid and Northwest Equine Stewardship Center (NWESC), will be funding another series of low-cost equine castration clinics for qualified applicants. The first clinic is being held on June 4, 2011. Dr. Hannah Evergreen will be generously donating her services to host this event at the NWESC facility in Monroe, with assistance provided by vet students.

We’ll also be holding clinics on August 6 and October 1. Dr. Evergreen and her colleague Dr. Kelli Taylor will be donating castration services on these dates, also at NWESC in Monroe.

The cost to the participant 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 in the cost of the clinic. 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 has been approved. Selections for the clinic are based on financial need or circumstances. All colts/stallions must be halter broke, in good health, with both testicles descended. You also must provide proof of a current Tetanus vaccination or a vaccination will be given at the clinic for an additional cost.
