This year, PAWS has entered into a partnership with the City of San Angelo for an educational initiative in hopes of changing the cultural attitudes towards pets and spay and neuter practices. Concho Valley PAWS offers re-duced-cost spay and neuter vouchers for cats and dogs monthly. Based on funding availability, the organization sells 60 low cost vouchers each month. Dog vouchers cost $50 and cat vouchers are $25. We also provide “Target Vouchers” to families owning pit bulls and chihuahuas. The purpose for “targeting” these breeds for sterilization is because they are the most commonly euthanized breed at the local shelter. In addition, we offer free spay and neuter vouchers for cats and dogs of low-income homes that fall beneath the income standards of $11,000 annually for a single person or $24,000 annually for a family. All of these programs are funded by local support and grant revenue from state and local foundations.
