Warmer weather may still be months away, but Northland Spay/Neuter wants you to “beat the heat” by spaying your cat in advance of her heat cycle and preventing unwanted litters from being born this spring.
Animal shelters commonly refer to spring time as “kitten season” because that is when they receive the largest influx of unwanted litters that are difficult to adopt.
To help reduce the number of homeless cats born this spring, Northland Spay/Neuter is offering a special “Beat the Heat” promotion sponsored by PetSmart Charities. During the entire month of February, Northland Spay/Neuter will spay female cats for a special rate of $20.
Spaying and neutering is one of the most effective ways to reduce the homeless pet population. While some worry that their pet may be too young for this procedure, spaying and neutering is safe for kittens as young as 8 to 10 weeks old, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association.
This special rate is available to all residents of the Twin Ports. Cat owners who wish to take advantage of this offer must mention the “Beat the Heat” promotion when they schedule their appointment.
