The Pyramid Lake Indian Reservation will host their first-ever spay/neuter clinic Saturday and Sunday, October 13th-14th.

A temporary clinic will be set up in the Wadsworth Community Center to spay and neuter cats and dogs belonging to tribal members - including surgeries and vaccinations - all free of charge.

Tribe members can drop off their pets at 7:00 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and they can pickup their pets from 3:00 p.m. to 4 p.m. either day.

The clinic will also be available to stray cats and dogs. 

“From time to time we see stray dogs and cats around the communities, so this is a great opportunity for our members to improve the lives of their cats and dogs,” said Vinton Hawley, chairman of the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe. “We look forward to a big turnout.”

Licensed veterinarians along with a trained staff will be on-site to provide the best possible care to tribal pets.

The community center is located at 551 8th Street in Wadsworth.

The effort is a collaboration with Maddie's Pet Project in Nevada, Nevada Humane Society, and the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe.
