ASPCA Visit Attracts Early-Risers


By 8:15 a.m. on Monday, April 27, a large crowd with pets in tow had gathered on the plaza at Beach 94 Street and Rockaway Beach Boulevard to take advantage of the ASPCA's popular reduced-price veterinary care services. Pet owners arrived as early as 6:00 a.m. to be first in line for spaying and neutering of their cats and dogs. Services are free to those with papers to prove public assistance, such as a Medicaid card, TANF, Medicare, disability, SI, food stamps, or rent receipt for public housing. The lowcost fee for other pet owners is $75. For more information, call 1-877- SPAY-NYC, or visit www.aspca.org/- petowners. The next visit to Rockaway by the ASPCA Van is scheduled for Tuesday, May 26 at 7 a.m. The van will be located near the Doughboy Monument in the plaza at Beach 94 Street and Rockaway Beach Boulevard.
