The best way to help the animal overpopulation problem is to prevent it - that’s where PawsCo’s spay/neuter efforts come in.
PawsCo works to get to the root of the problem by bringing subsidized spay/neuter services to rural communities in Colorado that don’t have access to vet care or affordable veterinary services. Raising $6,000 will fund a PawsCo spay/neuter clinic in a Colorado community.
PawsCo brings a mobile unit, volunteers, a certified veterinary technician and a veterinarian for each clinic and partners with volunteers in the community and residents to spay or neuter 100-200 dogs or cats each weekend (3-day clinic). Pet owners in the community pay a copay of $10-20 to cover surgery and vaccines for their animal, so clinics are largely subsidized.
By preventing new litters, spay/neuter decreases the number of animals in the shelter system. The PawsCo model also focuses on education and collaboration with the community to encourage lasting change.
Join us to be part of the solution and host a clinic in Alamosa this summer. Here’s what your contribution can do:
