Lamar County Humane Association will be at the Red River County Fairgrounds in the Coliseum building, 570 E. Center St., offering a low-cost spay/neuter SNIP clinic Saturday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

LCHA Adoptions Coordinator Kandra Wyatt said the clinic is an opportunity for people to ensure the health of their pets at a low cost.

“Medical care is very expensive, even for a pet,” Wyatt said. “This is a great chance to lessen the financial burden, which may hold people back from getting the vet care they need. It also ensures the benefit of keeping rabies at bay and unwanted litters of animals from going neglected and ending up in a shelter situation.”

Wyatt said Lamar County needs all the help it can get in ensuring the county’s animals receive proper care.

“SNIP is a wonderful program and tool to help animals have happy healthy lives within our community,” Wyatt said. “It’s a win-win. The owners have a break on their wallets for vet care, and the city shelter gets a break on homeless animals filling up the kennels.”

Available during Saturday’s SNIP Clinic:

  • $30 spay/neuter for cats and dogs;
  • $24 for FVRCP with leukemia combo;
  • $15 for five-way or seven-way shot for dogs;
  • $15 for kennel cough;
  • $10 for FVRCP shot sets;
  • $8 rabies vaccination; and
  • $6 microchip.

SNIP is available for up to two pets per household, and there is an additional fee for pregnant or cryptorchidic pets. The clinic is only available to Lamar County residents.
