Happy Neuter Year $20 Male Cats and Dogs Now Open For Scheduling

 

Make a New Year’s resolution to neuter your male dog or cat during Kalamazoo Humane Society’s “Happy Neuter Year” campaign.

Sponsored by PetSmart Charities®, “Happy Neuter Year” provides $20 neuter surgeries for male dogs and cats.

Kalamazoo, MI (December 15, 2015) – The Kalamazoo Humane Society 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,” says Julie Barber, Kalamazoo Humane Society. “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 and is available to all residents of southwest Michigan. 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.

The Kalamazoo Humane Society will provide 700 “Happy Neuter Year” sterilizations for $20 in January. Please visit http://www.kazoohumane.org or call 269-345-1181 for more information or 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.

January 2016: “Happy Neuter Year”
  • Spay or Neuter = $20.00 for male cats and dogs
  • Scheduling is now open!
  • You must mention “Happy Neuter Year” in order to get the discounted price!
  • Dog appointments must be pre-paid and have a Registration Form completed. Cat appointments are available first-come-first-serve and are payable at the time of services.
