SNAP's spay/neuter mobile veterinary clinic to visit New Mexico State University campus in January

The Spay & Neuter Awareness Program (SNAP) will bring its mobile spay and neuter clinic to the New Mexico State University campus for two weeks in January -- one week to serve the university community and the second week to serve the community at large.


versity's Feral Cat Management Program (FCaMP) will sponsor the first visit, Jan. 6-10, 2003, during which the clinic will spay and neuter as many feral cats as FCaMP volunteers can gather.

The van will be at the parking lot between Skeen Hall and the NMSU police station. It will be staffed by one veterinarian and two veterinary assistants.

Slots not filled by FCaMP will be available for the spaying and neutering of companion animals belonging to NMSU faculty, staff and students.

The mobile clinic will return Jan. 20-24, 2003, to offer spay and neuter services to low-income families, people who are on Medicare, Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income, the disabled and full-time students.

Donations of $20 will be accepted for spaying or neutering cats or small dogs less than 45 pounds. For dogs weighing more than 45 pounds, the requested donation is $35. The cost includes rabies vaccinations. Low-cost feline and canine vaccinations will also be available.

Appointments will be scheduled through December. For more information or to schedule an appointment during the clinic's first visit, call (505) 527-4529 or e-mail FCaMP at fcamp@nmsu.edu. Arrangements for the second week of January can be made through SNAP at (505) 524-9265.
