This year, the Cheyenne Animal Shelter is participating in Spay Day, a national initiative to get as many animals spayed and neutered as possible.
Here’s how it will work in Cheyenne:
Between Monday, Feb. 4, and Friday, Feb. 8, patrons may bring their animal to the Cheyenne Animal Shelter at 800 Southwest Dr. between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. to receive a nationally-registered microchip at a discounted rate of $25. Once the animal has received its microchip, the owner can sign up for a free spay or neuter surgery at one of the participating vet clinics in town and will receive a voucher for a particular day and clinic. The surgeries will take place between Feb. 25 and Mar. 1.
If animals are already microchipped but not spayed or neutered, owners must still pay $25 to the Cheyenne Animal Shelter to receive a voucher. Animals must be vaccinated per the individual clinic’s rules prior to surgery, and the voucher cannot be used to pay for vaccinations.
Surgery appointments will be made on a first-come, first-served basis and are limited.
A big thank you to the veterinary clinics in Cheyenne for participating in this great initiative.
