The Have a Heart Humane Society will again host a $20 spay and neuter clinic, this time through Angel Dogs, for low-income Tehachapi pet owners.
The clinic will be held on Friday, Oct. 18.
The majority of the funding is being provided by a grant from the Bakersfield Californian Foundation obtained by Have a Heart Humane Society. Second District Supervisor Zack Scrivner has also pledged to provide funding for the project.
The cost will be $20 per pet and each pet will be spayed or neutered, will receive a free microchip, a Rabies vaccination, a cone/e-collar, an antibiotic injection, a pain injection and pain meds to go home. Cats will not have pain meds to go home. Kern County Animal Control will also be on hand to provide dog licensing.
The Angel Dogs mobile clinic will be located in the parking lot on the northeast corner of Valley Boulevard and Tucker Road, behind the Fastrip gas station.
FVRCP vaccinations for cats and DHPP vaccinations for dogs are available for a small fee from Angel Dogs.
To make a reservation come to the Have a Heart Adoption Day in front of Radio Shack on Sept. 7 or Sept. 14, between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Bring proof of income such as a pay check stub showing current year totals, a disability statement or an unemployment statement. Your co-pay of $20 will be taken when you make your reservation. Co-pay is cash only and non-refundable.
Only 25 appointments are available and appointments are first come, first serve. Dogs may be up to 120 pounds but no more than seven to eight years old.
Angel Dogs reserves the right to turn a pet down if they feel the pet is at risk. Appointments will not be taken by phone, email or Facebook.
