Veterinary practices join in effort to offer discounted spay and neuter procedures

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 pet sterilization procedures to assist pet owners with financial needs. Participating veterinarians have agreed to offer the procedures at a reduced rate, resulting in a fee of $25 to pet owners.

Participating veterinarians have been issued a limited number of vouchers, which 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 show they have financial needs or communicate why they face unique circumstances.

Participating veterinary practices are: All Pets Center, Animal Birth Control, Amigo Animal Clinic, Arrowhead Veterinary Hospital, CLAWS, Cottonwood Veterinary Hospital, Desert Spring Veterinary Services, Jean Fromm, Footprints Animal Hospital, Grand View Animal Hospital, Orchard Mesa Veterinary Hospital, Redlands Pet Clinic and VCA Tiara Rado Animal Hospital.
