Thank you for spaying/neutering your companion animal. Spaying and neutering presents many health benefits for pets.
The Gunnison Valley Animal Welfare League (GVAWL) offers assistance to those for whom spaying a pet is a financial hardship. Through the generosity of our local veterinarians, private and municipal grants including the assistance of the Public Service Grant Program of the City of Gunnison, and our fundraising efforts, we have established a pool of funds available for this purpose. Please understand that this amount may vary year-to-year, and that certificates are only issued as funding will allow.
Upon approval of your application by GVAWL, the coupon you will receive is accepted by most Gunnison Valley veterinarians. Because of funding sources, preference is given to residents of Gunnison County.
You will be notified as promptly as possible as to whether GVAWL can provide you with assistance at this time. GVAWL will make final determination based on:
- funds available to GVAWL at the time of application and
- the information you provide to us on the application form
GVAWL reserves the right to deny assistance based on lack of available funding or an incomplete application.
You may also complete a Spay/Neuter Assistance Application online at http://gvawl.org or download the Spay/Neuter form in PDF, fill it out, and send it to us. Electronic submission of the application is considered acceptance of all conditions of the program.
After completion, the application may be mailed to:
Gunnison Valley Animal Welfare League
98 Basin Park Drive – PO Box 1834
Gunnison, CO 81230
And please remember to ‘pay it forward’ when you can.
