Make a New Year’s resolution to neuter your male dog or cat.
Albuquerque Animal Welfare wants you to ring in the New Year by making a resolution to neuter your male dog or cat during their “Happy Neuter Year” campaign.
Sponsored by PetSmart Charities, the largest funder of animal welfare efforts in North America, the “Happy Neuter Year,” campaign will provide $20 neuter surgeries for male dogs and cats during the month of January.
Spaying and neutering is one of the most effective ways to reduce the homeless pet population and is safe for puppies and kittens as young as eight to 10 weeks old, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association.
“Neutering male pets is a simple surgery that reduces unwanted behaviors, like roaming, fighting, and urine marking territories,” says Barbara Bruin, Director, Animal Welfare Department. “It also guarantees your dog or cat never fathers a litter of puppies or kittens.”
This special $20 rate is available to all residents of Albuquerque. Pet parents who wish to take advantage of this offer must mention the “Happy Neuter Year” campaign when they schedule their appointment. This campaign is based on availability.
Animal Welfare will provide 150 “Happy Neuter Year” sterilizations for $20 in January. Please visit www.cabq.gov/pets or call 764-1170 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
