ANIMAL FOUNDATION OFFERS
Pet owners who make and keep an appointment to have their dog or cat spayed or neutered at the Animal Foundation’s Low-Cost Spay and Neuter Clinic, 655 N. Mojave Road, during August will receive free core vaccinations at the Low-Cost Shot Clinic for the remainder of the pet’s life. The August Hot Shots promotion is introduced as summer temperatures, and intake numbers, continue to rise.
The Animal Foundation, Nevada’s largest open-admission animal shelter, receives more than 50,000 animals annually. The foundation’s intake numbers are higher than those of New York City and Los Angeles, two metropolitan areas with populations much larger than the valley.
To reduce the number of unwanted pets in Southern Nevada, all four valley jurisdictions passed mandatory spay and neuter ordinances in 2010, requiring pet owners to have their animals altered unless they possessed a breeders’ or fanciers’ license. Procedures at the foundation’s clinic start at $65 and include IV fluid and pain medication. Vitals (oxygen levels, heart rate, respiration rate and ECG) are monitored during surgery. Core vaccinations include DAPPV, rabies, bordetella and deworming for dogs, and FRVCPC, rabies and deworming for cats.
