Temporary Closure due to COVID-19

The Margaret B. Mitchell Spay/Neuter Clinic has been committed to fighting pet overpopulation for over 15 years. Effectively serving the humans in our community is at the core of our values.

It is for this reason that we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close the clinic to support efforts of state and local authorities to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.

The closure includes all transport services and the vaccine clinic(s) that would normally take place during this time.

Our last surgery day is Thursday, March 26th.

This closure will last at least until April 17th. We will reevaluate the closing schedule on a weekly basis to determine the most responsible course of action for the future.

Please visit our website and Facebook page for updates during this rapidly changing, uncertain time in our nation.

Please stay safe and take care of each other!

All future appointments will need to be made by calling (276) 591-5790 or PREFERABLY through the online scheduler link (at the top of this page).

Thank you for your patience during this unprecedented time. It is our intention to protect our staff as well as the community we have served for 15 years. Thank you all for helping us do our small part in this worldwide battle against COVID-19.

Welcome to Margaret B. Mitchell Spay/Neuter Clinic

Our Mission

The mission of our clinic is to provide targeted, high-volume, reduced-cost spay and neuter services in an effort to reduce the dog and cat over-population problem in the Virginia counties of Buchanan, Dickenson, Lee, Russell, Scott, Smyth, Tazewell, Washington and Wise; the Cities of Bristol and Norton; and the City of Bristol and County of Sullivan in Tennessee. While the clinic's focus is on serving these counties, animals will be accepted from other counties as availability permits.

Our vision is to end the need to euthanize healthy, adoptable dogs and cats by reducing the number of dogs and cats that enter the region's shelters.
