Local Veterinarians Join Forces With Animal Services to Provide Subsidized Spay/Neuter Vouchers
Mesa County Animal Services is partnering with local area veterinarians to offer spay and neuter vouchers for Mesa County pet owners. With these vouchers, the cost of the procedure will be $25 to the pet owner. The Animal Assistance Foundation has provided generous funding for over 385 sterilization procedures, and local veterinarians have agreed to offer the procedures to Mesa County citizens at a substantially reduced rate. Pet owners will be required to provide proof of current rabies vaccination at the time of the procedure. If the animal does not have a current rabies vaccination, the owner will be required to pay for that service. The cost of the rabies vaccination is NOT covered by the $25.00 co-pay.
The veterinarians listed below have been issued a limited number of vouchers for 2019. Issuance of the vouchers is entirely at the discretion of each participating veterinarian office. The veterinarians may ask individuals to provide proof of financial need or be able to communicate why they have a unique circumstance that results in a need for the voucher.
The vouchers are intended to help people with financial need and will be given out on a first-come, first served basis starting March 1, 2019. The vouchers are valid through Sept. 30, 2019.
The case for sterilization is strong. Spaying or neutering helps pets live longer, healthier lives. And by managing overpopulation in the community, we ensure that all pets have access to the five freedoms - freedom from hunger and thirst, discomfort, pain, injury or disease, fear and distress and freedom to express normal behavior.
