Low cost Spay and Neuter Days at the Gallup-McKinley County Humane Society (1315 Hamilton Rd., Gallup) have been postponed. Procedures are still being conducted, however they are scheduled out through May 1. For the time being no new spay and neuter surgeries are being scheduled. The phones are still active and emergency calls will receive a response, and the crew continues feeding the animals at the shelter. However, Cosy Balok, Supervisor for Animal Control for the City of Gallup, is asking people to hold onto animals and contact their own veterinarians if there is a medical need. Only animals who must be euthanized will be taken in. Since the Gallup-McKinley County Humane Society is a no-kill shelter, only animals who cannot be saved are euthanized. Throughout the year, the shelter has sent more than 3,500 animals to larger locations in Arizona, Utah and Colorado for adoptions. Those facilities are not taking transported animals at this time. In order to remain a no-kill facility, the shelter needs to provide enough space for the animals currently in its care. For more information, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
