Pet tips
January 13, 2014, 05:00 AM By Scott Delucchi

Movie buffs remember this famous line from the Godfather: Marlon Brando's Don Corleone character said, "I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse." I'm going to go all "Corleone" on you. Beginning Wednesday, Jan. 22 (and the fourth Wednesday of each month after that for as long as we see a community need), San Mateo residents will pay exactly $0 to have their dog or cat spayed or neutered at our mobile spay/neuter clinics. We've chosen Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center,725 Monte Diablo Ave., as our spot. You can't miss our custom-painted cruiser with the license plate that says "FIX ME." If you have a pet that you've been meaning to get fixed and finances a little tight, visit our clinic. We don't even ask folks to demonstrate their financial need. Let your moral compass guide you. These clinics are intended to serve low-income or fixed-income pet owners who might not otherwise get their pet fixed. This same surgery we're offering at no cost could cost more than $400. Think we're nuts? It's part of our mission to help people do the right thing for their pets and we've never made it any easier. We don't even require pet owners to make an appointment. Just show up on one of our clinic dates between the 8 a.m.-9 a.m. admitting hour. Make sure your pet has fasted from midnight on the night before; water is OK. You'll leave your dog or cat (one per family, please) with us for the day to get fixed inside our surgery suite on wheels and return later that afternoon. We'll send you home with a woozy pet and post-surgery instructions. The vital surgery is good for you and it's especially good for your pet as it eliminates messy heat cycles, unwanted litters and certain forms of cancer. And, it's good for us, as it means fewer unwanted animals will enter our shelter.

Scott oversees PHS/SPCA’s Adoption, Behavior and Training, Education, Outreach, Field Services, Cruelty Investigation, Volunteer and Media/PR program areas and staff from the new Tom and Annette Lantos Center for Compassion.
