The Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA has received a $75,000 grant from the PARC Foundation and a $20,000 grant from the Bruce G. Geary Foundation to support the low-cost veterinary clinic at the shelter. The clinic is open to the public, catering to pet owners with limited incomes, and offers services for cats, dogs, and rabbits. These services include spaying and neutering, minor surgeries, vaccinations, health testing, flea/tick and worm preventatives, microchipping, basic teeth cleaning, and health and wellness exams. CGHS/SPCA collaborates with Chathams Small Animal Hospital to provide these services to the community.


“We are very grateful to both the PARC Foundation and the Bruce G. Geary Foundation for their support. These funds will make life-altering, quality changes for hundreds of animals that will be seen at our veterinary clinic, many of which would otherwise go without medical care,” said CGHS/SPCA President/CEO Ron Perez.


All services at the clinic are by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, pet owners can call (518) 828-6044 ext. 100.
