Making the decision to spay and neuter your pet can be the single most important thing you do for them. The Kent Animal Shelter of Calverton is introducing the “Precious, Not Parents” campaign. Through the campaign, Kent Animal Shelter will provide $20 spay and neuter surgeries for puppies and kittens under 6 months of age during the entire month of June 2015.
Getting your pet spayed or neutered can reduce the risk of homeless pets killed, improve your pet’s health, reduce unruly behavior, and save on the cost of pet care. Some pet owners may be concerned that their pet is too young for this procedure, but spaying and neutering is safe and easy for kittens and puppies as young as 8 to 10 weeks old, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association. It is important to get pets spayed and neutered young to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Kittens as young as 4 months and puppies as young as 5 months are old enough to get pregnant and have their first litter just two months later.
This special $20 rate is even less than the organization’s normal low-cost price and is available to all residents of Long Island.
The campaign is based on availability. The Kent Animal Shelter will provide 225 “Precious, Not Parents” sterilizations for $20 in June.
Pet parents who wish to take advantage of this offer must mention the“Precious, Not Parents” campaign when they call to schedule their appointment.
