More than 1,050 dogs and cats were spayed and neutered for free at the inaugural M*A*S*H clinics hosted by the Maui Humane Society in June.

The clinics are part of a concentrated effort to reduce pet overpopulation.

    During the recent clinics, veterinarians and vet techs from different parts of the US volunteered their time to assist in the sterilization clinics conducted over a period of nine days.

    In addition to the free health service, every dog and cat also received a free microchip, vaccine and county license. MHS representatives say the value of these services start at $300 and can go up to more than $800 depending on the pet’s size and other factors.

    Due to the success of the first M*A*S*H clinics, a second-round of clinics are scheduled for dogs on Aug. 24 and cats on Sept. 28, 2015.

    Pet owners are encouraged to make an appointment now to spay or neuter their pets for free by calling the Maui Humane Society.

    Maui Humane Society worked with Animal Balance to bring the pet sterilization clinics to the island and extended thanks the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Maui and other animal advocates in helping promote the M*A*S*H clinics.

    For more information about Maui Humane Society, to adopt a pet, volunteer and for a list of upcoming events, call the Maui Humane Society at (808) 877-3680 or visit the Maui Humane Society online.

    In an earlier announcement, MHS representatives said they plan to hold these M*A*S*H style clinics for cats several times per year, for the next five years. MHS also plans to hold dog clinics on a quarterly basis.
