Vet Clinics to Offer Discounted Spaying & Neutering
Veterinary Clinics in Stratford and area will celebrate World Spay Day 2019 by offering reduced prices for spaying and neutering services for cats and dogs over the week of February 26, 2018. World Spay Day is an international day of action to promote the sterilization of cats and dogs as a way to save animals’ lives. It talks place each year on the last Tuesday of February, this year February 26, 2019. Since 2014, the Feline Friends Network, a volunteer organization that works to help eradicate cat overpopulation and homelessness in Perth County through education and the implementation of various spay/neuter programs, has been challenging local veterinary clinics to offer discounted spays and neuters on, or around, World Spay Day.
FFN has seen an increase in abandoned/homeless cats in Stratford. In most cases these cats are unaltered. They are having kittens outside many of which do not survive. Unaltered cats tend to have behavioural issues which we believe is one of the reasons they are being put outdoors.
This year five local clinics are participating and the amount of the discount is determined by each clinic.
