Non-Profit Spay/Neuter — Start Date: February 2014 — End Date: Ongoing
We were contacted in February 2014 by Espanola Humane asking if we would pick up funding for their free cat spay/neuter program for Rio Arriba County residents. They were already providing this important service, but their previous funding had lapsed.
We agreed to pay the cost to sterilize and vaccinate for rabies and FVRCP all cats belonging to county residents through their spay/neuter clinic. (They had already been accepting our free spay/neuter vouchers for cats and we were pleased to expand our role with them.) The partnership has been working very well and in 2017 we expanded the funding to cover all cats belonging to New Mexico residents who are permitted to sterilize their cats at the clinic – focusing on Rio Arriba County, northern Santa Fe County and Taos County.
Through October 2019, our partnership has provided free spay/neuter to over 6,319 cats. And – in addition to the spay/neuter surgery and vaccination costs (both Rabies and FVRCP) we now also include an optional microchip – all free to the cats serviced at Espanola Humane. To schedule your cat’s surgery, call 505‐753‐8662.
