NEUTER (& Spay) DAY FOR CATS IS NOV. 1! Seattle Humane offering FREE neuter surgeries and low-fee spays for cats
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:October 14, 2011
The Seattle Humane Society is holding a FREE Neuter (& Low-Fee Spay) Day for Cats on Nov. 1. Male cats will be neutered for FREE and females spayed for $15 (additional charges may apply for complicated surgeries). Feline microchipping and FVRCP vaccines will also be available for $5 each.
Appointments are required. Low-income cat lovers can make an appointment online at seattlehumane.org or call (425) 649-7560. The surgeries will be done at the Seattle Humane Society, 13212 SE Eastgate Way in Bellevue. Cats must be at least 4 months old.
"The Seattle Humane Society knows firsthand that offering free and low-fee spay/neuter services leads to a ripple effect that benefits several aspects of our community,” says CEO David Loewe. “It promotes responsible pet ownership and general pet health, and it reduces the number of cats who enter area shelters each year.”
Spaying/neutering keeps cats from producing unwanted litters and it actually improves a pet's health! The simple surgery reduces reproductive cancers in females and prostate cancer in males. Other benefits include making them less likely to roam and become injured, less likely to spray or mark, and less likely to exhibit dominant behavior.
Seattle Humane Society’s Neuter (& Spay) Day for Cats is made possible thanks to a $5,000 grant from The Washington Federation of Animal Care and Control Agencies. The funds for this grant award are made possible by the sale of Washington State “We Love Our Pets” license plates.
