Mobile spay/neuter clinic begins
Foothills Animal Shelter, with support from the Animal Assistance Foundation, is launching a new mobile spay/neuter program called A Simple Fix. The shelter’s large mobile unit will host 24 clinics within the community through June 2013.
In partnership with Jefferson County Animal Control, Westminster Animal Management and Wheat Ridge Animal Control, these clinics will provide subsidized spay/neuter services.
The clinic will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. More information and a schedule of clinic stops is available online at www.foothillsanimalshelter.org/simplefix.
Payment can be made with cash or credit cards: $60 for dogs and $20 for cats. Animals can be checked in at 7:30 a.m. and picked up by 4 p.m. the same day. The next clinic date will be Friday, Aug. 17, at the Fruitdale Park’s Off-Leash Dog Park, 4700 Miller St., Wheat Ridge.
Noxious weed board seeks nominations
Four positions within the State Noxious Weed Advisory Committee will become vacant in November 2012. Nominations are now being sought by the Colorado Department of Agriculture. The committee discusses Colorado’s weed-management problems and helps develop solutions that best reflect public and private interests. The committee then makes recommendations to the Colorado Department of Agriculture concerning designation of state noxious weeds; classification of state noxious weeds; development and implementation of state weed-management plans; and prescribed techniques for eradication, containment, and suppression of state noxious weeds. Terms are two years in length, and appointees are limited to two, full, consecutive terms. Members meet quarterly. Positions that become vacant in November include seats for a municipal official, a horticulture-industry representative, a resource specialist, and an at-large position.
Nominations must be submitted no later than September 15. More information can be found at www.colorado.gov/ag.
