TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

One of Arizona's largest spay/neuter clinics, Altered Tails based out of Mesa, is inviting pet owners to join them as they open their first Tucson based clinic at 225 East Valencia Road. 

The new facility will offer affordable and accessible spay/neuter services to Tucson. A grant from PetSmart Charities for $500,000 helped make this new clinic possible, the charity will also provide an additional $100,000 to subsidize spay/neuter procedures to help keep costs to pet owners low.

There will be an official ribbon cutting ceremony featuring City of Tucson Ward 5 Council Member Richard Fimbres, as well as representatives from PetSmart Charities and Altered Tails.

Festivities during the day, starting at 8 a.m. will be clinic tours, a staff meet and greet.  There will be free eegee's drinks for those who bring an item on Altered Tails' wish list, including bleach, gently used towels, laundry detergent, copy paper, black sharpies and clip boards. 

Here are a few reminders to those considering getting their pets spayed/neutered, (these surgeries will be from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.):
