Free veterinary care clinic coming to Steamboat on Saturday

The Routt County Humane Society (RCHS) Wellness Clinic has been awarded a $4,000 grant from the ASPCA (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) to support vaccination and microchipping efforts of community owned pets throughout Northwest Colorado.
 Elaine Hicks, executive director of the Routt County Humane Society, expressed her gratitude, stating, “We are thrilled to announce that the ASPCA has generously awarded us a $4,000 grant in support of our upcoming Veterinary Care Clinic scheduled for Oct. 14. This substantial contribution empowers us to offer free vaccinations and microchipping for up to 100 community animals.”

She added, “Our vaccination clinic is open to all, and thanks to the ASPCA grant, RCHS can continue our mission of reducing the spread of communicable diseases among our local animal population by ensuring comprehensive vaccination coverage. Furthermore, microchipping ensures that every animal has a secure ticket home, reinforcing our commitment to their welfare and safety.”

The Veterinary Care Clinic will be held 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at Cook Subaru in Steamboat Springs. Pets will be cared for on a first-come, first-served basis.
