The city's low-cost spay and neuter clinic will soon be moving from its cramped space at 854 Goodman to a larger facility in Hickory Hill, thanks to a building donation from First Tennessee.

The new location at 5650 Mt. Moriah is twice as large as the current Mid-South Spay & Neuter Services facility, the waiting room for which is often standing-room-only on a typical day. Since the new space was a former veterinary clinic, future renovations are expected to be feasible and cost-effective. The larger size will allow the clinic to increase the number of patients it's able to treat.

First Tennessee gave the building to Mid-South Spay & Neuter Services as part of their community investment efforts, through which it donates foreclosed properties to nonprofit groups. Mid-South Spay & Neuter Services will start a public fund-raising campaign to fund renovations to the new space.
