People in underserved areas can get spay/neuter services for their pets at reduced fees, subsidized by Dumb Friends League donors, when one of our mobile spay/neuter clinics visits their neighborhood. Our Meow Mobile offers spay/neuter services for cats, while our Lulu Mobile offers spay/neuter services for both cats and dogs.
We also partner with local animal welfare organizations in a trap-neuter-return (TNR) program for community (unowned) cats to help reduce the number of unwanted litters born and the number of kittens and cats brought to shelters.
Both clinics are staffed with veterinarians who are licensed in the state of Colorado to perform the surgeries. Some are in private practice and volunteer through the Denver Area Veterinary Medical Society. Others are on the staff of the Dumb Friends League. They have experience spaying and neutering dogs and cats in high-volume settings. They are assisted by veterinary technicians.
