United Coalition for Animals (UCAN) Nonprofit Spay & Neuter Clinic
Funded in 2020
A 501(c)3 charitable organization founded in 2001, UCAN Nonprofit Spay & Neuter Clinic’s mission is ending the euthanasia of cats and dogs in local shelters in the Greater Cincinnati area (Southwest Ohio, Southeast Indiana and Northern Kentucky) and keeping pets in their loving homes by providing professional and affordable spay/neuter surgeries and basic veterinary care. UCAN operates a clinic in Cincinnati, OH, has performed over 133,000 spay/neuter surgeries to date, and focuses its efforts on families with pets living in poverty, shelters, rescues and community cats.
The Grey Muzzle Organization grant will enable UCAN to provide bloodwork (CBC and Chemistry Panel) for 100 senior dogs of low-income families. That bloodwork will enable UCAN to diagnose and treat medical conditions of these beloved dogs so they stay happy, healthy and in their homes. The grant will help dogs just like Dracula, an adorable 13-year-old dog that recently came to UCAN because he was ill. Dracula’s family could not afford medical care at a for-profit veterinarian office. UCAN provided the diagnostic bloodwork for a minimal co-payment and was able to diagnose and treat Dracula.
