The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Polk County (SPCA of Polk County) is living up to its name and mission to help cats and dogs in Polk County with several exciting events coming up.
Starting on Sept. 18, the SPCA of Polk County will be opening “The Clinic,” offering spay, neuter and wellness services with the official grand opening on Sept. 23. The Clinic has been in the making for several months, so what started as a dream is now a reality for Polk County – the only non-profit, affordable spay, neuter and wellness service in our community. The clinic is located at 802 S. Houston Ave. in Livingston. For more details, see www.spca.polk.org/the-clinic.

Attendees can enjoy wine tasting, snacks, live music by Dr. B on the Keys, a silent auction and a kissing booth. Tickets may be purchased at www.spcapolk.org/event-details/wine-whiskers-1. Proceeds will benefit the SPCA’s efforts to help homeless dogs and cats.
SPCA of Polk County will host its annual “Paws in the Patch” event on Oct. 21 at First Methodist Church in Livingston located at 2801 U.S. Hwy. 190 West.
