Cancun to host free pet sterilization clinic

Cancun, Q.R. — Veterinary clinics in the city of Cancun are offering a free spay and neuter clinic to cat and dog owners.

The free clinic will be held April 28 and 29 to help curb the overpopulation of cats and dogs in the city. The sterilization campaign is organized by Cancun veterinary clinics and civil organizations who will be assisted by dozens of volunteers.

City residents wishing to have their pet sterilized can participate in the clinic with recognized photo identification. The clinic will begin at 8:00 a.m. on both days and will be held at the Serapio Rendón Alcocer primary school of Supermanzana 77.

Veterinarians say they have a limit of 100 pets per day. To take advantage of the free spay and neuter campaign, residents can simply show up with their identification and their pet.

In March, the municipality of Solidaridad held a free vaccination clinic around various parts of Playa del Carmen for National Anti-rabies Vaccination Week.

Every year, several free sterilization and vaccination campaigns are held throughout the state, mostly in the high-temperate months. Additional campaigns will be held again in August.
