animalPueblo Animal Services is offering low cost spay-neuter surgeries to income qualified pet owners thanks to grant funds from the Colorado Pet Overpopulation Fund (CPOF).

“We hope that by offering spay and neuter surgeries at drastically reduced co-pays, the Pueblo community will be encouraged to use our services. Our goal is to help remedy the issue of pet overpopulation in the Pueblo area, and subsequently save the lives of homeless animals,” stated Julie Justman, Associate Director of Pueblo Animal Services.

The Subsidized sterilizations are available for those who qualify for AND, AFDC, receive unemployment compensation, food stamps, other government assistance or have children in the school lunch program. Proof of income is required at time of surgery. Pueblo Animal Services is also offering vaccinations to those who schedule surgeries at a reduced rate.

The cost for cat sterilization is $15 for dogs and $10 for cats.

Appointments are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and space is limited.
