In an effort to better serve Austin families in the areas with the most need in pet welfare and care the City’s Animal Services Office will be offering a new free spay/neuter clinic in the zip code of 78724.
The newest location will be Turner Roberts Recreation Center at 7201 Colony Loop.
These mobile winter clinics will be held January 13, February 2, February 17, March 2 and March 17.
It is recommended that owners bring pets to the clinic no later than 8 a.m. These services are first-come, first-serve, and some people begin showing up as early at 5:30 a.m. to get a spot in line.
Each year the City of Austin provides thousands of free spay/neuter surgeries and vaccines for pets in need through a close working relationship with the City’s partner Emancipet.
These surgeries are provided at no cost to Travis County residents in Emancipet’s mobile clinic at eight locations in Austin and Travis County. View the schedule, here.
The Austin Animal Center is committed to providing the community with needed animal-related services to help pets and their families.
