'Happy Neuter Year' campaign helps pets get low-cost neutering
Sponsored by PetSmart Charities, the largest funder of animal welfare efforts in North America, the “Happy Neuter Year,” campaign will provide $20 neuter 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 12 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 Clara Nolan, Nutmeg’s executive director. “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. 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.
Nutmeg Spay/Neuter Clinic will provide a limited number of “Happy Neuter Year” sterilizations for $20 in January. For more information, visit nutmegclinic.org. To make an appointment, call 203-690-1550.
PetSmart Charities’ “Happy Neuter Year” campaign provides more than $561,000 to spay/neuter clinics to fund affordable, high-quality spay and neuter surgeries for 13,631 male dogs and cats across the nation during the month of January.
