Spay / Neuter Services
Animal overpopulation is a constant theme in PETroglyphs and other animal publications. This is especially true in the spring when kitten season arrives again. Shelters are already finding themselves inundated with kittens and puppies looking for homes.
People often have good intentions to spay or neuter their animal but life gets busy and they don't think about it again until they are confronted with an unexpected and unwanted litter.
In an effort to make it easier for people to find available spay/neuter services, Leslie King, Community Programs Manager of Animal Protection of New Mexico (APNM), has done the homework for all of us. She compiled a directory called Spay-Neuter Resources in New Mexico: Low-Cost and No-Cost Programs. You can find it on the APNM website here.
This is an invaluable tool because it lists the spay-neuter resources throughout the entire state in one place. It is truly one-stop shopping at its best.
Please check it out and tell your friends. People need to know there are places waiting and ready to help them keep their animals from having those unwanted litters. No more trying to give the kittens and puppies away to friends or taking a box of kittens to a parking lot to give to strangers or dumping a box of squirming puppies at the shelter. Now everyone can do the responsible thing and have their animal spayed or neutered before that next litter appears.
The Spay-Neuter & Wellness Clinic in Santa Fe is just one of the clinics listed in the directory and available to the public. This handy clinic at 2570-B Camino Entrada (next to Outback Steakhouse) offers low-cost spay/neuter programs.
The clinic is open from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. every Monday, Tuesday and Friday, as well as the first and third Thursdays and second and fourth Saturdays of each month. Vaccination clinics are held each Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and from 1:00 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Several special programs can be accessed at the clinic to help lower the cost of spay/neuter surgery even further. If you qualify for any of these programs, this is an excellent opportunity for you to help your animals.
1. Moving Forward For Felines Fund
2. Big Brown Dog Bonanza
3. Rico's Fund
