Our Partnership for Animal Welfare program, or PAW, provides low-income individuals with spay/neuter and vaccination financial assistance. Spaying/Neutering your pet reduces the rate of homeless pets in your area. Vaccinations reduce the spread of deadly disease that can damage the health of your neighbors, their pets, and local wild-life.
AnimalVillageNM does NOT provide veterinary services. If you have a medical question about your pet, contact your local veterinarian.
To be eligible for our PAW program, you must provide proof that you:
Receive EBT or Medicaid
Are a Disabled Veteran
Have an Annual Family Income less than $30,000
With the assistance of PAW, this is what the cost of spaying/neutering your pet is reduced to:
$45 reservation fee; nonrefundable; no checks accepted
$35 additional fee if animal is pregnant or in heat
$12-15 for additional pain medication (medication for day of surgery only is provided at no cost; additional 4 days of pain medication is recommended.
To qualify for receiving vaccinations, note that:
You must provide documentation (current rabies, canine or feline distemper/parvo, and bordetella).
If vaccinations are not up-to-date, vaccinations can be provided at expense of the guardian at time of spay/neuter appointment - payment due when scheduling appointment.
You may only schedule two surgeries with our PAW program a year.
If you have any questions on our PAW program, contact Lisa at (575) 446-4685 on Monday, Wednesday, & Friday from 2-4 for more information.
