Canines, felines attend clinic
A spay/neuter clinic from Santa Fe performed surgeries on 36 dogs and cats on Saturday and Sunday for Tucumcari petowners.
Funded by $4,000 from the city of Tucumcari, the Santa Fe Animal Shelter’s spay/neuter van set up its operations in downtown Tucumcari under the direction of a shelter veterinarian Kristine Weaver. Weaver was assisted by vet techs Myria Bretta and Mychele Moody, who are with the Santa Fe program, and local volunteers.
Clinic organizers, with the help of local volunteers Lynn Rodgers and Dean Billings, were able to provide city residents with low cost animal spays or neuters.
Dorothy and Lowell Buxton brought their two male cats, Boo and Joe Bob.
Two days after the surgery, Lowell Buxton said the family’s pets were doing just fine.
“We’re more or less on a fixed income. It helped us save money,” Lowell Buxton said. “We appreciated it.”
