The County of Hidalgo, City of McAllen and Palm Valley Animal Center have partnered with the RGV Low Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic to provide direct sterilization services to the citizens of Hidalgo County through the MASH Clinic Initiative. This is the County's first-ever "mobile" spay and neuter clinic.

The MASH Clinic kicked-off its mobile services Friday, August 3, 2012 at the Othal Brand Boys and Girls Club in McAllen. Through the MASH Clinic Initiative, the County of Hidalgo, City of McAllen, and Palm Valley Animal Center hope to reduce the County's pet overpopulation by addressing the problem directly and allowing the public easier access to the clinic both physically and financially. The clinic will be rotating services throughout the four precincts and expects to provide at least six clinics in each precinct before the end of the year. While there is a cost for the procedure, it is only $20 per pet, significantly lower than the normal $40-$85 the clinic charges at their office.

Since its opening in 2009, the RGV Low Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic has performed over 13,000 surgeries. If you would like to learn more about the MASH Clinic Initiative or pre-register for a mobile clinic near you, please contact the clinic directly at (956) 687-7728.

The next MASH Clinic is scheduled for Friday, August 24th in Edcouch.
