Riverside County animal shelter offering spay, neuter specials

May 31, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
A local animal shelter is offering special prices for the next 300 pet owners who sign up to get their pets spayed or neutered.

Half-price procedures are being offered at the San Jacinto Valley Animal Campus on South Grand Avenue through Thursday, June 9. You must book an appointment and the special is for one pet per person, but owners can book additional surgeries for pets at the regular price.

Surgeries for dogs will be $42.50 and cats will cost $20. The special rate only covers the surgery and there are additional costs to the owner, including fees for a pain-reduction shot, a microchip and any necessary vaccinations the pet may need.

Pet owners can book an appointment on the Riverside County Department of Animal Services' website or call (951) 358-7387.
