Beat the Heat with Cat Spay Campaign
Jan 30, 2014 06:34PM
Sponsored by PetSmart Charities, Nutmeg Spay/Neuter Clinic’s “Beat the Heat” cat spay/neuter campaign will provide $20 spay surgeries for female cats during the month of February. Spay/neuter is an effective way to reduce pet overpopulation and is safe for kittens as young as 12 weeks old, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). Spaying a female cat before the first heat cycle can also reduce the risk of certain reproductive cancers and infections.
“Female cats can have as many as three litters a year, and kittens can breed as young as four months old,” says Clara Nolan, Nutmeg’s executive director. “Most people don’t want to see their cat get pregnant over and over again, so hopefully our ‘Beat the Heat’ campaign will serve as a gentle reminder to cat owners to sterilize their cats before they go into heat this year.”
Nutmeg Spay/Neuter Clinic is a nonprofit organization in Stratford, CT providing low-cost spay/neuter services for cats and dogs. PetSmart Charities, Inc. is a national nonprofit animal welfare organization that saves the lives of homeless pets.
