Pawprints on the Heartland Frank and Isabelle Rinehart low-cost spay/neuter van has announced its schedule of operations for August.
The van will be operating Aug. 7 at Arcadia, Aug. 12 at Galena, Aug. 14, 21 and 28, Pittsburg; and Aug. 19, South Mound.
Regular fee for spay/neuter surgery is $35 for cats and small dogs.
All pets must be at least three months old to undergo surgery. They must be brought in on a leash or in a carrier. Appointments are necessary, and may be made by calling toll free 1-877-887-7729 or 674-8133 for Craw-Kan customers.
Reduce-cost and free services are available for low-income, elderly or disabled pet owners. Vouchers can be obtained by calling the appointment telephone number.
To date, more than 35,000 pets have been spayed or neutered in the van, preventing the birth of millions of homeless pets this season.
Pawprints is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping control the overpopulation of animals. Each year thousands of pets in southeast Kansas must be put to death simply because there are not enough homes for them.
Motto of Pawprints is “Prevention, Not Destruction.”
Anyone wishing to sponsor a spay/neuter surgery for a disadvantaged pet may send a $35 donation to Pawprints, P.O. Box 644, Pittsburg, Kan., 66762.
