If you have a dog or cat that you need to have spayed or neutered, but you don’t have the money, a program in Colorado could be the answer.  Every year thousands of  taxpayers mark the “check off”  on their tax returns to fund low cost spay and neuters.  Then veterinary clinics and animal welfare groups apply for the funds and offer them to low income clients.  This is a great thing because according to statistics compiled by the Colorado Department of Agriculture, more than 173,000 dogs and cats entered Colorado shelters in 2006. More than 43,000 of those pets were euthanized.

Dr DeAngelo at the Calhan Veterinary Clinic has taken part in this program for several years and says the need for the low cost service continues to grow.  “There is definitely a need to help keep stray animal population down”, says DeAngelo.  “We have a tremendous overpopulation of small animals.”

Participating clinics are offering these services while supplies last so you should call right away.  More demand and fewer donations will have the funds used up quickly!
