We are so excited that renovations are almost complete at 325 Rolling Hill Road the third site for Spay Neuter Charlotte. All of our fingers and toes are crossed that we will be ready to open by the second week in January. To begin the clinic will offer surgery appointments Tuesday through Thursday and provide basic medical care on Fridays. Our intention is eventually use this location as a regional spay neuter hub, providing transport to and from other communities who are in need of services but aren’t able to easily reach us. Opening up a clinic in Lake Norman was the natural next step in making sure that everyone Charlotte-area has access to affordable veterinary care. Having a clinic in center Charlotte (near Uptown) and one in the south in Pineville, it only made sense to expand our reach up north. There aren’t resources readily available in Lake Norman/Mooresville. We know that the large number of homeless animals in this area contribute to the number of dogs and cats euthanized in the region. Spay Neuter Charlotte’s ultimate purpose is to prevent the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable animals in our community. Opening up a clinic in Lake Norman will get us closer to that goal.
The new building is two minutes from the Exit 35 off of I77 and can also be easily accessed by Rolling Hill Road. It was formerly used as a day care center but we have revamped it for our purposes. The space is fabulous; a large lobby and spacious rooms for our animal kennels and there are windows in every room including our new surgical suite!
Dr. Molly Foley who currently works in our NoDa clinic will open the clinic assisted by our new staff veterinarian Dr. Cat Moore who will ultimately serve as the anchor veterinarian in this location. Dr. Moore joins the SNC team from a private practice in Maiden, North Carolina and is excited to support our mission to create a region without homeless pets.
We will host a community open house on Sunday, February 5th from 2:00 – 4:00. We hope that you plan to attend and spread the word. We are so looking forward to being in the neighborhood and making friends in the community.
