Richmond's Fix Our Ferals clinic reopens

By Mike Kinney

More than a year after suspending operations due to funding constraints, the Richmond-based reduced-cost spay-neuter clinic Fix Our Ferals reopened last month.

The April 2016 closing of the clinic at 12226 San Pablo Ave. concerned community members and nonprofits who rely on its services to address the homeless cat population. Since opening the clinic about five years ago, tens of thousands of feral cats have been spayed or neutered there.

During the clinic’s closure, the nonprofit’s officials were busy fundraising, and they’re elated to reopen.

“We are proud to serve the Richmond community and their beloved animals,” Executive Director David de Funiak said.

The nonprofit offers affordable spay-neuter services led by Jean Goh, DVM, and Robin Post, RVT — two veterans of the San Francisco SPCA’s spay-neuter team, de Funiak said.

The clinic is open Sunday, Monday, Thursday and Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Reservations are required.

Cats can be dropped off from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. You can pick up cats from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
