GLENDALE, AZ - The Arizona Humane Society kicked off its Pet Overpopulation Campaign by setting up a free mobile spay and neuter clinic.
The large van adorned with animal faces will be set up at the PETCO in Glendale from Tuesday through Thursday.
“The only effective solution to pet overpopulation is by spaying and neutering,” Bretta Nelson with the Arizona Humane Society said. “And the free mobile van clinic helps to make sure it’s an affordable and accessible service to the community.”
Keep in mind though; the AHS’ mobile van clinic is a first-come-first-serve basis. Nelson tells ABC15 that the first person in line for Tuesday’s clinic showed up at 3 a.m. and they were actually forced to turn away 40 people and their pets.
But if you can’t make it this week, don’t worry.
AHS sets up the mobile clinic every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. They also pick about four different locations monthly, making sure they can be available to residents around the Valley.
Next week, there will be another clinic in Chandler. This one, however, won’t be free to the public.
