RIVERSIDE (CBS) — Riverside pet owners can now reserve low-cost spay or neuter services online.

Online applications are available by visiting the Riverside County Department of Animal Services Web site under “pet services.”

City spokeswoman Jenna Coombs says pet owners will be contacted within about two weeks with an appointment date once an online application is submitted.

Riverside County Animal Services charges a flat, low-cost surgery rate for dogs and cats, regardless of weight. Surgeries for dogs cost $85 and $40 for cats.

Those without computers or an e-mail address can call the Department’s main phone number at (951) 358-7387 to request an appointment or stop by the clinic at 6851 Van Buren Boulevard in Riverside.

    This information should also be posted at markets, gas stations, restaurants to make sure that Riverside pet owners see this. The information should also include the benefits of spay and neutering. But if people don’t want to pay the low cost fee, there should be funding to give them a little more motivation to get there pet spayed or neutered.
