TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Beginning this year, free spay-neuter surgery for up to two pets a month is available for any pet owner on government assistance.

Clinics that participate in the Pet Fix program will provide the services in an effort to slow the stream of unwanted and abandoned pets.

Government assistance might include Section 8 housing, AHCCCS or food stamps.

People living in one of 16 residential areas, regardless of government assistance can also qualify for the program, which is sponsored in part by the Pima County Health Department and administered by the Animal Welfare Alliance of Southern Arizona.

In central Tucson, any resident within the area between Interstate 10 on the west and Columbus Boulevard on the east and between Prince Road on the north and Speedway to the south is eligible for assistance.
