PetSmart Charities Sponsors $20 “Happy Neuter Year” Surgeries
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (Dec. 28, 2015) – Young-Williams Animal Center wants you to ring in the new year by making a resolution to neuter your male dog or cat during their “Happy Neuter Year” campaign.
Sponsored by PetSmart Charities, the largest funder of animal welfare efforts in North America, the ”Happy Neuter Year” campaign will provide $20 neutering surgeries for male dogs and cats during the month of January.
Spaying and neutering is one of the most effective ways to reduce the homeless pet population and is safe for puppies and kittens as young as eight to 10 weeks old, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association.
“Neutering male pets is a simple surgery that reduces unwanted behaviors, like roaming, fighting and urine-marking territories,” said Young-Williams’ CEO Jeff Ashin. “It also guarantees your dog or cat never fathers a litter of puppies or kittens.”
This special $20 rate is even less than the organization’s normal low-cost price of $70 for dogs and $45 for cats. Pet parents who wish to take advantage of this offer must mention the “Happy Neuter Year” campaign when they schedule their appointment. This campaign is based on availability.
Young-Williams will provide 300 “Happy Neuter Year” sterilizations for $20 in January. Please visit www.young-williams.org for more information or call (865) 215-6677 to schedule an appointment.
PetSmart Charities’ “Happy Neuter Year” campaign provides more than $733,180 to spay/neuter clinics to fund affordable, high-quality spay and neuter surgeries for more than 20,650 male dogs and cats across the nation during the month of January.
