H.O.P.E.S on Navajo — Collaborative Spay/Neuter Clinic with the Navajo Nation Veterinary Management and Christian Veterinary Mission in Tuba City
On August 18 & 19, and August 29 & 30, between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm, come to Navajo Nation Animal Control facility in Tuba City off Pine Street. Drive up with your pets and receive free vaccinations/microchips/licensing and also sign up, with $10 cash, for spay or neuter appointment (the spay and neuter will happen September 12-15.) Bring current vaccine records if your pet already has vaccines. Follow COVID guidelines. More detailed information is in the flier below.
Get your animals vaccinated against common core diseases to protect them. The basic core vaccination for puppies and dogs is against parvo and distemper. Puppies need a full series of vaccinations beginning at 6-8 weeks old, after they are weaned, to be fully protected. Another core vaccination for puppies and dogs is against rabies, and that should first be given by 3-4 months of age, and then a year later. For cats, the FVRCP vaccination against 3 common very infectious and deadly diseases for cats, also should be given beginning at 6-8 weeks of age to keep them healthy.
Reserve space online for your animals to be spayed or neutered at The Parker Project (click this link and then click on Schedule Appointment button on that page.) If you go to sign up, and those dates are not available for the kind of spay or neuter (dog or cat) you are looking for, that means that those dates have filled up for those slots. Spaces fill up way ahead! Look at the schedule and see if you are able to travel to other locations that still have space available.
