Free spay and neuter services scheduled for Tuesday in Las Cruces
LAS CRUCES, N.M. — The Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley will be offering free spay or neuter services Tuesday as a part of World Spay Day.
The center will take about 65 customers on a first come first serve basis beginning at 6 am.
"We can always work with you to try and get them in and get them altered so we do not have these unwanted puppies," said Dr. Beth Vesco-Mock, director at ASCMV.
Vesco-Mock said they do expect a high number of people and will stop taking pets at 8 am.
The center does offer low cost options year round for those who might not make the deadline Tuesday.
Vesco-Mock added performing a procedure on a pet can reduce the risk or testicular cancer that can develop in male dogs.
The surgeries will be available for pets between six months old to six years old.
Pets should not have water or eat past midnight prior to surgery.
