Steamboat Springs, CO – The Routt County Humane Society (RCHS) Wellness Clinic has been awarded a $4000 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, including expenses associated with our Oct. 9, 2021, community Veterinary Care Clinic. The grant will help RCHS fund essential veterinary care, to include vaccinations, heartworm testing, microchipping, as well as FIV/FELV testing for cats. 

 “The Routt County Humane Society is grateful to receive a $4000 grant from the ASPCA to support funding of our Oct. 9, 2021, Veterinary Care Clinic.  This money gives us the capability to vaccinate and microchip 100 community animals for FREE.”  said Elaine Hicks, Executive Director of the Routt County Humane Society. “The vaccination clinic is open to everyone and the ASPCA grant allows RCHS to further our efforts of decreasing communicable disease among animals in our community by ensuring all pets are vaccinated and ensuring all animals have a ticket home through microchipping.”

This FREE Veterinary Care Clinic will be held on Saturday, Oct. 9 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Cook Subaru (1955 Curve Court) in Steamboat Springs. The clinic is FREE and open to everyone. Pets will be cared for on a first come first serve basis so be sure to come early.
