Over 80,000 Animals Spayed and Neutered
Companion Animal Clinic Foundation, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization in Southern Pines, is a volunteer organization dedicated to eliminating the euthanasia of abandoned and unwanted animals in our region through affordable spay/neuter.
CAC Foundation works with local veterinarians, rescue and adoption organizations, county governments, and the North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine to accomplish its mission.
With the support of our sponsors, current and past, The Companion Animal Clinic Foundation kept millions of unwanted animals out of North Carolina’s animal shelters and saved taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars.
History of CACF / SNVC
The Spay Neuter Veterinary Clinic of the Sandhills was organized and supported by the Companion Animal Clinic of the Sandhills Foundation. The Foundation, organized as a 501c3 organization in 2006, purchased and remodeled the SNVC building into the premier spay/neuter facility that exists today. With support from CACF the Spay Neuter Veterinary Clinic of the Sandhills was opened in 2008. The result of this combined effort by CACF and the SNVC has resulted in 78,000 surgeries by the end of 2019.
In its first year of operation, the Spay Neuter Veterinary Clinic of the Sandhills performed over 4,200 spay/neuter surgeries for the initial nine county service area. By the end of 2008, the SNVC was performing at the rate of over 40 surgeries a day for individuals and groups from all nine counties. By spring 2012, 25,000 spay/neuter surgeries were provided at the Spay Neuter Veterinary Clinic of the Sandhills and the coverage area expanded from nine counties to eleven counties in Central NC. Between 2007-2014 Dr. Joe Currie was the veterinarian owner. Between 2015-2019 Dr. Cynthia Eaton was the veterinarian owner. By 2019, 78,000 surgeries were provided to a thirteen-county service area. The SNVC was subsidized through 2019 by CACF as the facility and equipment were provided by CACF to the Clinic at no cost. Surgeries were directly subsidized through grants and donations.
During 2020 the SNVC under Dr. Eaton operated independently from CACF; however, CACF continued to subsidize surgeries through partnerships with private veterinarians on behalf of affordable spay/neuter. With the creation of the Sandhills Spay Neuter Veterinary Clinic (AKA: SNVC) the Foundation will continue to promote affordable spay/neuter at 5071 US Hwy 1 Suite C, Vass, NC. The new SNVC opens January 19, 2021 to carry on the mission of affordable spay/neuter with the Foundation’s support. Between December 19-January 18 the facility will undergo major renovations to make it a safer environment for both clients and staff.
Our mission is to reduce pet overpopulation and increase the quality of life for pets through increasing accessibility to spay and neuter services to cats and dogs in our local, and surrounding areas. SNVC works with area animal shelters, rescues, and individual pet owners to provide affordable pet surgeries in North Carolina to achieve our mission.
