Young-Williams Animal Center will offer low-cost $20 spay/neuter surgeries for all pets six months and younger throughout the month of August. This “Back to School” campaign is sponsored by PetSmart Charities, the largest funder of animal welfare efforts in North America.
According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, 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.
“The first step in reducing pet homelessness is spaying and neutering,” says Dr. Lisa Chassy, director of veterinary services. “These discounted surgeries serve as a great opportunity to remind the community how important it is to have your pet fixed. Thanks to wonderful partners like PetSmart Charities we are able to make these procedures affordable for all pet owners.”
This special $20 rate is even less than the organization’s normal low-cost price and is available to all residents. Pet parents who wish to take advantage of this offer must mention the “Back to School” campaign when they schedule their appointment. This campaign is based on availability.
“Spaying and neutering pets is a simple solution that reduces unwanted behaviors, like roaming, aggression and difficulties with housetraining,” says Chassy. “It also guarantees your dog or cat never fathers or mothers a litter of puppies or kittens.”
