The City of Surprise has joined forces with the Arizona Humane Society to sponsor a three-day event to spay and neuter pets.
The Arizona Humane Society will bring its mobile Spay and Neuter Clinic to Surprise Aug. 9-11. The clinic will be at the northwest corner of Civic Center Plaza and West Tierra Buena Lane.
The mobile clinic features a state-of-the art surgical ward and four veterinary staff members.
The free spay and neuter surgeries will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis for dogs and cats ages 2 months to 5 years. Surgery check-in will begin at 7 a.m. each day.
Cats must be in a carrier and dogs on leashes.
Animal patients must not have food 12 hours prior to surgery, although drinking water is OK.
Dogs and cats must weigh a minimum of 2½ pounds to undergo surgery. Dogs weighing more than 95 pounds cannot be accepted at the mobile clinic.
Pets also may be vaccinated at the time of surgery for $18 each. Other services include testing for canine heartworm and feline leukemia as well as treatment for ticks and fleas.
