GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) – Mesa County Animal Services is working with eleven participating local veterinarians to provide spaying and neutering vouchers to pet owners.
This is thanks to a generous grant from the Animal Assistance Foundation and will reduce costs to $25 per animal. The only requirement is proof of current rabies vaccination. The program runs from March 1 to September 30. Spaying and neutering helps dogs in shelters get adopted and find homes by promoting “adopt, don’t buy.” In addition to reducing the pet population.
“This prevents unwanted litters from ending up at the shelter,” said Mesa County Animal Services Director Doug Frye. “The shelter is not the place for an animal, we try to get it into a home or rescue it to get it out of the shelter ASAP. But if we can stop those litters to begin with, then we are ahead of the game.
There are a limited number of vouchers at each veterinary clinic, so pet owners are urged to call ahead and ask. Here are the eleven participating veterinarians:
