Spay and neuter fees lowered for cats during Fix Your Pet Month

IMMEDIATE RELEASE-St. Catharines, ON (March 21, 2017) – March is Fix Your Pet month and the Ontario SPCA Lincoln County Humane Society Animal Clinic is encouraging the public to spay or neuter their pets and help reduce the number of unwanted animals in their communities.

Until the end of March, the Lincoln County Humane Society Animal Clinic is offering $50 cat spays and neuters to the community to show their strong commitment to providing accessible and affordable surgeries for animals in the community. “Fixing your pet is the kindest thing that you can do,” says clinic manager Alicia Morey. 

In nearby Welland, the Welland and District Regional Spay Neuter Clinic also has a special promotion running until the end of March. During that time, spay and neuter services for cats will be offered at $50 per procedure.

“When it comes to Animal Welfare, the importance of spaying and neutering cannot be overstated,” says John Greer, Executive Director, Welland & District Humane Society. “Every pet owner has a role to play in preventing pet overpopulation.”

Spaying or neutering pets may also reduce health risks and improve behaviour in your pet. Fixed pets are also less likely to roam, reducing the risk of injury, accident and loss.

To help combat pet overpopulation, the Ontario SPCA offers and supports high-volume spay/neuter services at locations throughout Ontario that are accessible to the public, shelters and rescue groups, regardless of geography or income level. Since it began offering spay/neuter services in 2009, the Society has fixed over 95,000 animals.
