Owning a pet is fun but it can occasionally be expensive, especially when visiting a veterinarian. Montrose residents now have a way to reduce one of those costs with a low-cost spay and neuter clinic.

In an effort to reduce unwanted dogs and cats, Montrose Animal Protection Agency and Telluride Animal Foundation have developed a special spay and neuter clinic with the assistance of Black Canyon Veterinary Clinic.

The clinic will be offering discounted spay and neutering for both dogs and cats July 17 through 28. Cost for dogs is $25 and cats are $15.

Pet owners wishing to take advantage of the clinics need to make an appointment by calling Black Canyon Veterinary Clinic 970-787-2282.

When you call, the staff can also answer any questions or address concerns before you bring your pet in.
