Spay Illinois is hosting a low cost spay/neuter day on Friday Feb. 15. You can have your dog spayed/neutered for $85, your cat spayed/neutered for $50 and this includes the pain medication.
“Through the program we are hoping to provide the chance for happier, longer lives for these pets, and also decrease the number of unwanted dogs and cats entering municipal and private shelters in our area,” CEO Kathi Daniels said.
There are no income or residency qualifications for this program. If you
are on food stamps or SSDI you can have your pet spayed/neutered for
$15. Kendall County Food Pantry participants can have their pets
spayed/neutered for $25. Appointments fill up fast so please call at
Organizers said the program is crucial to the Kendall county area in helping to keep the euthanasia rate of companion animals to a minimum. The only humane solution to euthanasia is spay/neuter and making it affordable so that everyone can afford to have their pet altered.
According to veterinarians, “the benefits of spaying and neutering pet dogs and cats are numerous and include preventing health problems, decreasing the changes of a pet running away, and helping to decrease the number of unwanted pregnancies and, therefore, the number of animals in shelters.”
