The Los Banos Police Department has accepted a $5,000 American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals grant for a low-cost spay/neuter voucher program . Applications for the ASPCA program will be available on Jan. 7 at the police station, 945 Fifth St. The number of applications will be limited and on a first-come-first-served basis. Last year, the voucher program paid for 44 dogs and 66 cats to be spayed and neutered. During this same time the Los Banos Animal Shelter took in 2,237 dogs and cats. Anyone with questions about the program may contact Animal Control Officer Jason Martin at (209) 827-7070 ext. 252.
