Q: How can I get assistance with pet care?
A: The Central Spay Neuter and Wellness Clinic in Kernersville focuses on low-cost spay/neuter surgeries and vaccinations. The Forsyth Humane Society can also assist with spay/neuter procedures and vaccinations and has a pet food pantry. Please check with them to see if you meet the eligibility requirements for their programs. Forsyth County Animal Control also provides assistance with pet food.
Q: Are there any resources for pest control?
A: There is not a low- to no-cost resource for pest control. It is best to research local companies to find reputable licensed companies and compare rates. Contact the Better Business Bureau for assistance in finding a local company. Clients can ask the company if they offer a senior discount.
