Animal services extending dates to sign-up for free spay/neuters

News

EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – El Paso Animal services have added additional dates to sign up for free spay/ neuter services.

This is possible through a generous grant from PetSmart Charities, a release said.

According to the release, the goal of the grant-funded voucher program is to conduct targeted spay/neuter surgeries, to help reduce the number of animals entering the Animal Services Center.

The $75,000 grant gives Animal Services the opportunity to offer a limited amount of no-cost spay/neuter procedures, and the services will be provided to residents receiving government assistance on a first-come, first-served basis, the release said.

To qualify and sign up for the services, residents must take their current award letter (ex. Medicare, Medicaid, SNAP, Social Security, WIC, CHIP, TANF) to the Animal Services Center located at 5001 Fred Wilson.

Pet owners may only register during the dates and times that follow and will need to provide accurate weight and age for their pet.

  • Thursday, January 23 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

  • Thursday, January 30 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Friday, January 31 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Thursday, February 6 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Friday, February 7 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
