With spring well on its way, people and their dogs and cats will be finding ways to play outdoors. Make sure your pet is vaccinated to prevent the spread of disease, microchipped in case they get lost and neutered to prevent unwanted litters. To make it easy, Foothills Animal Shelter is offering these offsite clinics during May so you and your pet can play outdoors safely and happily.
Vaccine clinics for May also include microchips and dog licenses. Vaccines are $15 each and include rabies with certificate, Distemper/Panleukopenia for cats and Distemper/Parvo and Bordetella for dogs. Microchips are $35 for both dogs and cats and dog licenses are $15 for neutered pets and $30 for unaltered.
Vaccine clinics for May are:
Thursday, May 9 – Lakewood City Hall, 480 South Allison Parkway, Lakewood, from 4 to 6 PM.
Saturday, May 11 – Fruitdale Dog Park, 4700 Miller Street, Wheat Ridge, from 2 to 4 PM.
Saturday, May 18 – Murdoch’s Ranch & Home Supply, 9150 Wadsworth Parkway, Westminster, from 2 to 4 PM.
Saturday, May 25 – Wag N’ Wash Healthy Pet Center, 5066 South Wadsworth Boulevard, Littleton, from 2 to 4 PM.
The shelter’s mobile spay and neuter unit will also be out and about in May. According to Foothills, Pet overpopulation can be controlled with spay and neuter surgeries and it also helps families avoid the financial hardships of caring for additional litters. There are even health and behavior benefits including cancer prevention and eliminating indoor marking.
Spay and neuter surgery clinics are done on a first come, first served basis, no appointment necessary. Check in is at 7:30 AM. Pets will be ready for pick up between 3 and 4 PM. Pricing is $20 for cats and $60 for dogs, cash or credit card only.
Upcoming mobile surgery clinics are:
Friday, May 3 – Best Friends Pet Care, 11440 West 44th Avenue in Wheat Ridge.
Friday, May 10 – Murdoch’s Ranch & Home Supply, 9150 Wadsworth Parkway, Westminster.
Friday May 17 – Murdoch’s Ranch & Home Supply, 9150 Wadsworth Parkway, Westminster.
