Stop The Alabama State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners from shutting down spay/neuter clinics!

    1. Petition by

      Alabama Spay/Neuter Clinic

Please sign this petition to help save the Alabama Spay/Neuter Clinic from being unjustly shut down by the Alabama State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners! Over the last three years Alabama Spay/Neuter Clinic has performed over 33,000 high quality, low cost surgeries to many people who otherwise could not afford to fix their animals. We have, since inception, been approved & sanctioned by the Alabama Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners, the licensing agent for all clinics & veterinarians in the State.

On June 9th, we received a certified letter from The Alabama State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners, signed by Tammy S. Wallace, executive director of the state board. The letter alleges that the Alabama Spay/Neuter Clinic is not owned by a licensed veterinarian and is therefore in violation of Alabama Code and must cease operations. We believe this is a politically motivated attack on the clinic, spearheaded by a few of the Board members who do not subscribe to our mission for one reason or another.  The State Board has already effectively closed the North Alabama Spay Neuter Clinic in Huntsville and is now taking aim at us! We feel they will move on to the other non-profit Clinics in the State and we need your help to stop them! 

In accordance with state law, Dr. William Weber owns the practice performing veterinary service in the Clinic- he employs, manages & pays the veterinarians. The Clinic owns the equipment, plus we hire support staff for the veterinarians. We feel strongly that we are operating within the law, as we have been for the past 3 years. It appears that we will be going to court to resolve this - an unfortunate waste of precious resources! In addition to fighting this in the Judicial system, we need a loud outcry from our supporters. Please sign this petition and help us stop the Alabama State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners, as spay/neuter clinics are very important to our community and we can't afford to have the board unjustly shutting down clinics across the state of Alabama!

      I am signing because this clinic is important. If this clinic close the number of animals euthanized with increase in number. The number of diseased animals will raise. This clinic helps our animals. It would be a big mistake to close this clinic. Every day lots of homeless animals are put to sleep because of no space and no food. It will get even worse if this clinic closes. Alabama needs this clinic.

      It's important to get our animals fixed. Without this clinic a lot of people will not have their cats fixed because of the cost. This clinic helps lower the number of animal euthanasia and diseases. Closing this clinic who be inhumane.

      I think these clinic's should be kept open to help people who are on limited incomes to spay & neuter their pets....And also to cut down on the number of animals that end up in shelters unwanted and end up having to be euthanized!
