Free spay, neuter services planned for El Paso, Texas

The El Paso City-County Health and Environmental District's Pet Care-A-Van this month will offer free spay and neuter services in five East El Paso locations this month.

The mobile clinic, which includes a veterinarian and support staff, today is expected to visit the Oz Glaze Senior Center, 13969 Veny Webb in Horizon City.

Tuesday, it will make a stop at the Eastwood (Album) Park, 3110 Parkwood and will be at Marty Robbins Park, 11600 Vista Del Sol, on on March 24 and 25.

The clinic on March 27 heads to the K5 Bakery and Grocery store, 513 Ascencion, and will visit the La Fe Montana Vista Community Center, 14618 Greg, on March 28 and 31.

Stray dogs have been a concern for some residents in East El Paso and the service is meant to stem the number of animals euthanized throughout the county.

No appointment is needed for the spay and neuter services, but the clinic is limited to just 25 animals each day. Participants are taken on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 6:30 a.m.

Rabies shots and registration of pets also will be offered, with each service costing $10.

Dog and cat owners are asked to follow several guidelines for the service:

# Do not feed the animal for 12 hours before the registration.

# Animals must be older than 4 months and younger than 6 years for the service.

# The pet must be in good health.

# Current proof of rabies vaccination is required.

Information: 274-4270.
