This May, thanks to a grant from Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust, Altered Tails, Arizona’s largest spay/neuter clinic specializing in high-quality, low-cost spay/neuter services, offers a “No Mother’s Day” $20 spay surgery promotion for all female dog owners in Maricopa County. This special $20 rate also includes rabies, DA2PP and Bordetella vaccinations.

“Spaying and neutering is one of the most effective ways to reduce the homeless pet population and is safe for puppies and kittens as young as 12 weeks of age, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association,” said Ellen Clark, executive director, Altered Tails. “Spaying a female dog before the first heat cycle can be beneficial, improving the health of the pet by reducing the risk of certain reproductive cancers and infections.”

This special rate for spay surgeries at the Barnhart Clinic, 950 W. Hatcher Road, is available to all female dog owners by making an appointment; mention the “No Mother’s Day” campaign when calling 602-943-7729 or online at This campaign is based on availability.
