Nevada Humane Society is opening a veterinary clinic this week at its new Carson City location for high-quality, low-cost spay and neuter surgeries.
The clinic is part of the new Carson City Animal Shelter which is run by Nevada Humane Society and opened last October.
The low-cost spay and neuter resources are available for those who cannot otherwise afford it. People must qualify by showing proof of social security or public assistance. Low-cost vaccines and microchips are also available.
The Carson City clinic hours will be as follows and by appointment only for those that qualify:
• Monday and Thursday, by appointment only, spay and neuter services for dogs
• Friday, by appointment only, spay and neuter services for cats
• Free Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) for feral (wild) cats is available every Tuesday and walk-ins are welcome (no appointment needed).
Other details include:
o Cats must arrive in humane traps (no boxes, crates or pet carriers)
o Loaner traps available with refundable deposit
o Kittens must be a minimum of 3lbs or 3 months old
o All cat and kittens will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated and eartipped
In addition to the above services, a low-cost, walk-in based vaccine clinic will be held every Friday, beginning August 18, from 3pm to 5pm for dogs and cats.
