Animal Shelter Offers New Spay/Neuter Clinics
The Aurora Animal Shelter will begin offering weekly spay and neuter clinics in partnership with SpayToday, NeuterNow! starting Jan. 8.
The partnership will provide affordable, quality spay and neuter surgery for dogs and cats owned by Aurora residents most Sundays at the Aurora Animal Shelter, 15750 E. 32nd Ave. A licensed veterinarian performs all surgical procedures.
“We are excited to expand the services that the Aurora Animal Shelter offers to residents with this new partnership with SpayToday, NeuterNow!,” said Jenee Shipman, manager of Aurora Animal Services. “One of the biggest problems we see as a municipal animal shelter is pet overpopulation, and we are committed to finding ways such as this partnership to help our residents care for their pets and continue to support a healthy animal community in Aurora.”
Appointments are required and can be scheduled online or by calling 303.984.7729. Appointments are limited to Aurora residents only.
The cost of the surgery is $40 for cats, and varies from $75 to $125 for dogs, depending on their size and gender. There is no income verification to qualify for the spay and neuter services. The Aurora Animal Shelter and SpayToday, NeuterNow! would like to thank the Animal Assistance Foundation for its financial help that made these clinics possible.
Spay Today, Neuter Now! is a Lakewood-based low-cost veterinary clinic dedicated to reducing pet overpopulation and euthanasia rates through spay, neuter and vaccination services. The Aurora Animal Shelter is a full-service, open-admission facility committed to protecting the animals of Aurora by providing shelter and care to any animal it receives.
In addition to the new Sunday clinics, the Aurora Animal Shelter will continue to host mobile spay and neuter clinics provided by the Dumb Friends League. A schedule is available on the shelter’s website.
All dogs and cats in Aurora ages 6 months and older are required to be licensed with the city, and unless the pet owner is seeking a more expensive intact animal license, pets are required to be spayed or neutered.
