MESA, AZ — Answering phones, filling prescriptions and preparing for surgery. It's another busy day inside AZPetVet's Mesa hospital. In the middle of it all is Traver Reinhart's 3-year-old Corgi, Sylvester, getting his yearly vaccines.

"I expect them to be a month out," he said. "Because last time we came it was two months out but that was because it was right in the middle of the pandemic so I kind of expected it."

Kelli Evans, Veterinary Recruitment and Engagement Manager at AZPetVet, says basic wellness routines often need to be booked weeks or even months in advance. She says part of the reason is that the number of appointments is exceeding the number of vets in Maricopa County.

"We may have a client that lives in Mesa and they're going to one of our Glendale clinics to get their pet seen," she said. "So, people are driving across the Valley to make sure their pets are getting the care they need."

A study from Mars Veterinary Health found over 40,000 additional vets are needed across the country to meet demand by 2030, putting 17 million dogs and 38 million cats at risk of not receiving care.

Evans says to keep up, they've extended their hours and are trying their best to see more pets a day while still giving them the attention they need.

"It's frustrating. I think it's challenging. I think it's different than what they've expected of their vets. Over the course of owning a pet, it is different. It has changed," Evans said. "We're hearing the frustration. We want to find solutions to make sure the pets are getting taken care of."

Some of those solutions include more vet schools and incentivizing new vets to practice in Arizona.

In fact, a bill led by the Arizona Humane Society would give veterinary students $100,000 in student loan forgiveness to those who work in Arizona for at least four years. A spokesperson for the Arizona Humane Society tells ABC15 the bill passed the House and the Senate and is now waiting to be signed as part of next year's state budget.

Mesa, Chandler offering homeowners cash to conserve water, get rid of grass

EAST VALLEY, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- Karen and Kelly Gleave just did something they never thought they’d do. They ripped out the grass in front of their Mesa home and replaced it with desert rocks and plants. “More and more as the Valley grows, I’ve realized that I need to do more to conserve,” said Kelly Cleave. “It just seems more responsible.”The drought-conscious couple is among a growing number of Arizona homeowners taking advantage of their city’s incentive program to conserve water and...

EAST VALLEY, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- Karen and Kelly Gleave just did something they never thought they’d do. They ripped out the grass in front of their Mesa home and replaced it with desert rocks and plants. “More and more as the Valley grows, I’ve realized that I need to do more to conserve,” said Kelly Cleave. “It just seems more responsible.”

The drought-conscious couple is among a growing number of Arizona homeowners taking advantage of their city’s incentive program to conserve water and create shade. By removing their lawn and putting in low water plants, the Gleaves received $550 from the City of Mesa. “I was of the mind that I was getting ready to make the change anyway, and so that incentive just really helped push me over the edge to decide it was time to do it,” said Kelly Cleave.

Becky Zusy is the conservation coordinator with the City of Mesa. She said recent news reports about the current water crisis in Arizona have sparked new interest in their “Grass to Xeriscape” landscape program, with a growing number of homeowners going from green to a desert scene. “I’ve gotten fantastic feedback,’ said Zusy. “People are thrilled with the changes. I think it updates the look of the home, and they’re happy to be saving water and happy to not have to mow the lawn in the summertime.”

The Gleaves also like paying less on their monthly water bill. Their thought is that if you can save money and the environment simultaneously, it’s worth looking into. “It is a definitely a win-win,” said Karen Gleave. “I’m actually encouraging friends and neighbors to try it out. It makes sense with that kickback and the extra money you get. It doesn’t cover the entire cost, but it probably covers close to half of it.”

For more details on Mesa’s landscape incentive program and to see what the requirements are, visit mesaaz.gov/conservation.

Other Valley cities have different conservation programs with different incentives. Chandler residents are eligible for up to $200 in rebates if they install low water plants. For information about the Chandler program, visit chandleraz.gov.

The City of Glendale also has a landscape rebate for residential and non-residential customers. In addition, Glendale residents can also receive new irrigation technology incentives through a federal grant. Non-residential customers with large landscape areas can apply as well. For more information about the rebate, visit glendaleaz.com.

Starting July 1, the City of Scottsdale’s turf rebate will double to $2/sq. Ft. as long as the grass is replaced with desert landscape. There are restrictions and guidelines customers have to follow, but homeowners can receive up to $5000 in turf removal rebates if they qualify. Residents must contact Scottsdale’s conservation team before they take out the turf. Additional questions can be sent to [email protected] if anyone wants to verify eligibility.

If you are a Tempe resident and looking for information about the city’s conservation programs, click/tap here. For Phoenix residents, the city has a new program to provide free xeriscape plans to residential customers. In addition, many resources on proper landscape watering and xeriscaping can be found at phoenix.gov/bewatersmart.

Cell phone company drops $3,600 bill for Mesa woman

MESA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- Megan Campbell is like a lot of us. Her smartphone is always close by. “I use it for day-to-day phone calls,” Megan told 3 On Your Side. “I use it for social media. I check my email on it. I would be lost without my cell phone.”Megan uses T-Mobile for her cell phone service, and she’s been pretty happy with them. So, you can imagine how surprised she was when she recently opened up an envelope from AT&T and found a bill for more than $3,685. “I have no idea what th...

MESA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- Megan Campbell is like a lot of us. Her smartphone is always close by. “I use it for day-to-day phone calls,” Megan told 3 On Your Side. “I use it for social media. I check my email on it. I would be lost without my cell phone.”

Megan uses T-Mobile for her cell phone service, and she’s been pretty happy with them. So, you can imagine how surprised she was when she recently opened up an envelope from AT&T and found a bill for more than $3,685. “I have no idea what this is. I’ve never had AT&T in my life,” she said.

The $3,685 bill was for the purchase of four iPhones. Concerned, Megan immediately called AT&T to tell them the charges must be fraudulent. But she claims AT&T pushed back, saying all their information matched hers, like her Social Security number used to open the account. Bottom line: They wanted her to pay. “You’re stuck with this bill,” 3 On Your Side’s Gary Harper said. “How does that feel?” he asked. “Not good,” she replied. “First of all, it’s a lot of money for something I didn’t even do. And then, someone has my Social Security number and creates an account. It’s not fair.”

Getting nowhere, Megan contacted 3 On Your Side for help. I asked AT&T to look into the matter, and after they did, AT&T realized the four iPhone purchases were indeed fraudulent. Megan says an AT&T representative told her they discovered that the four phones were pinging off of cell phone towers overseas.

And with that, AT&T waived the $3,685 bill and said Megan wouldn’t have to pay anything. Megan says it only happened because of 3 On Your Side. “I got zero responses from AT&T. I couldn’t get anybody to help or even believe me that they were fraudulent. And then Gary Harper got involved and worked his magic, and now everything has gone away,” Megan said, laughing.

AT&T was very responsive, and I appreciate that. By the way, this viewer now has a credit monitoring service to ensure something like this doesn’t happen again.

Mesa fire experts explain how to prevent causing a fire ahead of extreme heat

We haven’t had rain in months, so the dozens of wildfires we’ve seen this year could be just a preview of what’s to come.

MESA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - Extreme heat means everything is about to get a lot drier. We haven’t had rain in months, so the dozens of wildfires we’ve seen this year could be just a preview of what’s to come.

It’s why Arizona’s fire prevention education is telling the public about wildfire response and preparedness. “We call these one-hour fuels. One little spark on this and it can take off,” said Brad Bramlett, a member of the National Fire Prevention Team.

Dry grass, or what experts call fuel, can be found along highways all over the state. “In just a matter of minutes, especially in high winds, this could just take off,” said Bramlett.

Those extreme fire conditions are already straining resources. Bramlett said more than half of the fires in Arizona are human-caused. That’s why his agency is partnering with the U.S. Forest Service to educate people. “If you’re going down the road and your chain is dragging the ground, that spark gets over on a windy day and a blows a spark up over into the grass, it can ignite a fire,” he said.

If people do start fires that quickly spread, the Mesa Gateway Air Tanker Base has a dispatch center that will send help. “Putting this base here, it’s a centrally located base in Arizona that allows us to have a good pivot point of the whole Southwest to be able to respond to these fires,” said Chris Price, the Base Manager. He said every year, the fire season grows longer. Although we’re off to a slow fire season, they expect it to pick up during monsoon season because of lightning.

Saturday marks National Get Outdoors Day. As you plan your weekend activities, check the fire restrictions in place for each public lands agency on their website or Facebook page, and educate yourself on how to safely recreate outdoors during fire season. Here are some tips:
