Grant Will Help Low Income Pet Owners in Selah Cover Spay, Neuter Surgeries

GRANT COUNTY, WA — Pawsitive Alliance, with assistance from a grant from the Washington Federation of Animal Care and Control Agencies, will offer an upcoming low-cost, one-day spay/neuter clinic to dog and puppy owners residing in Grant County. The clinic will take place on September 19, 2019.

Reservations are required, and applications are available through Grant County Animal Outreach, 6725 Randolph Rd NE, Moses Lake, and online at http://grantcountyanimaloutreach.com

Requirements:

  • Co-pays of $20 for dogs and puppies must be submitted with the application
  • Dogs must be at least two months old, weigh at least two pounds
  • Due to additional surgery risks, no animals over the age of seven
  • Proof of rabies vaccination at the time the application is submitted (May include a health certificate, vaccination certificate or invoice with the pet ID and date of vaccination from the veterinarian)
    • The rabies vaccination is mandatory and will be administered at a cost of $10 for all animals without proof of vaccination

 “Unfortunately, there is limited availability of low cost spay/neuter services in central Washington.  These clinics provide valuable services to residents of Grant County that are low cost and convenient,” said Tereza Marks, Executive Director of Pawsitive Alliance.

On clinic days, animals will be dropped off at the Grant County Animal Outreach’s facility and transported to Yakima Humane Society to have their surgeries performed at the spay and neuter clinic. For more information, contact GCAO at 509.762.9616 or Pawsitive Alliance at 206.486.4PET.

There are many benefits to spaying and neutering. Spaying/neutering helps dogs live longer, healthier lives by eliminating or reducing the incidence of a number of health problems.
