CNJ staff

A mobile medical unit is in Clovis this weekend offering low-cost spaying and neutering for dogs and cats.
Low-income families and military members ranked E-5 and below can have their pet spayed or neutered for $20, according to a press release from Linda Cross, project coordinator.
Appointments will be made for Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
Pet owners need to pre-register, at which time they will be asked about their pet’s medical information and receive special instructions for their pet’s surgery.
Slots are limited, the release said.
Follow-up care for pets who have issues after the unit has left will be provided by Clovis Veterinary Hospital, the release said.
Funding for the unit’s work in Clovis is being provided by Yvette and Steve Dobbie of the Winston Foundation.
Yvette Dobbie is an animal activist who lives in California and Santa Fe, was appointed as a public member of the Animal Sheltering Services Board by the governor and has lobbied heavily for prohibition of the gas chamber as an animal euthanasia method in New Mexico.
