Humane Alliance Clinic is the only type of clinic of its kind serving 23 counties in Western NC. Humane Alliance is a high-volume, low-cost, high-quality stationary spay/neuter clinic, but there are many others located across the nation.
When one of the workers talk about the transport system the clinic has established to transport animals usually, the drop-off point is the location of the partner organizations. They usually have a shelter or other physical building where they meet. If not, they will meet them at their chosen location in their area, according to Marianne Luft of the Humane Alliance Clinic. Approximately 70% of all the patients that arrive at the clinic do so by this transport system.
As mentioned in earlier reports the Humane Alliance Clinic works with three of Haywood County’s local establishments in an effort to control the feral cat over population. Even though the Humane Alliance Clinic has been in service since 1994 they have only been working with Sarge’s since 2008, HAWA since 2001, and the Haywood County Animal Control (HCAC) since 2008. Here are the approximate average numbers of surgeries (cats only) from these three facilities the Humane Alliance Clinic completes per month?
Sarge’s – 25/mo. HAWA – 140/mo. HCAC – 10/mo.
According to Marianne Luft the Humane Alliance Clinic currently employs 7 full-time veterinarians and 28 additional support staff (clinic and administrative). Typically, 3 or 4 of the vets are performing surgeries for the clinic program and the others are working in one of the training programs the clinic operates.
