The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) is partnering with the Kentucky Equine Humane Center and the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) to offer a free gelding clinic at Prestonsburg Equine Center (Stone Crest), 1900 Kassidy Drive in Prestonsburg, on Saturday, April 9, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
In addition to gelding, free services include vaccinations, Coggins test, health certificates, deworming and dental services, which will be provided as needed. The services are open to the first 50 stallions scheduled by April 2.
“This is the fourth free gelding and wellness clinic we’ve had in the area, and we are happy to offer this again at no charge,” said Bryce Gill, Kentucky Humane Society equine outreach coordinator. “We feel fortunate to have this opportunity to build relationships with our horse community and provide support to as many horses as we can. We hope that folks take advantage of this free service.”
All participating stallions must arrive with a qualified handler, be halter broke, be in good health, and be at least four months of age. Horses must be scheduled in advance; walk-ins will not be accepted. No income verification is required and there is no background check.
Owners can schedule their stallions online at www.kyhumane.org/gelding-clinic or by calling 502-515-3141 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
