Spay/Neuter Vouchers Available on First-Come, First-Serve Basis
EL PASO, Texas – El Paso Animal Services is pleased to announce additional registration dates for their spay/neuter voucher program, which is made possible through a generous grant from PetSmart Charities.

The services will be provided to residents receiving government assistance on a first-come, first-served basis.
