Chicago's oldest and largest animal welfare organization, Anti-Cruelty Society, unveiled their state-of-the-art veterinary clinic at an Open House event on Sunday at 157 West Grand Ave. in Chicago.
According to the Chicago Tribune.com, the $3.6 million veterinarian clinic is the beginning phase of a total $8 million renovation to the four building complex.
Approximately 130 cats were spayed or neutered on Sunday in the renovated concrete basement where surgical suites, an in house oxygen generator, and windows peering into the operating rooms are available for clients to monitor their beloved four-legged friends. Included in the renovated space are offices for the veterinarians as well as recovery rooms.
The Anti-Cruelty Society provides funds and services for thousands of pets annually. Among the services provided are:
- Low or No Cost Spay/ Neuter Clinic
- Charity Veterinary Clinic
- Cruelty and Abuse/Investigations and Rescue
- Humane Education/ Community Outreach
- Dog Training Classes
