Veterinarians join in effort to offer discounted spay and neuter services

Grand Valley veterinary practices have joined with Mesa County Animal Services to offer spay or neuter procedures at a reduced price.

The Animal Assistance Foundation has provided funding for more than 385 pet sterilization procedures to assist pet owners with financial needs. Participating veterinarians have agreed to offer those procedures at a reduced rate, resulting in a fee of $25 to pet owners.

Participating veterinarians have been issued a limited number of vouchers for the program. Vouchers are offered on a first-come, first-served basis at the discretion of the veterinarians and are valid through Sept. 30.

Pet owners are required to provide proof of rabies vaccinations to use the vouchers. The cost of vaccinations isn’t covered. Pet owners also could be asked to support they have financial needs or communicate why they face unique circumstances.

The participating veterinary practices are: All Pets Center, Animal Birth Control, Amigo Animal Clinic, Arrowhead Veterinary Hospital, Canyon Country Animal Hospital, Cottonwood Veterinary Hospital, Desert Springs Veterinary Services, Jean Fromm, Footprints Animal Hospital, Grand View Animal Hospital, Orchard Mesa Veterinary Hospital, Plateau Valley Animal Hospital, Redlands Pet Clinic and Tiara Rado Animal Hospital.
