In honor of Father’s Day, the St. Augustine Humane Society is offering a special discount on neutering male cats.
June 15 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., a free neutering opportunity with $10 appointment fee will be offered. The program runs in conjunction with the non-profit’s mission to encourage pet owners to save animal lives by spaying or neutering domestic and feral cats.
According to Carolyn Smith, St. Augustine Humane Society’s executive director, the “Don’t Be A Father Day” neutering promotion will help to prevent many felines from being taken to shelters or euthanized due to unwanted litters and colonies. “We are addressing the feline overpopulation problem by focusing on prevention and working to eliminate the need to euthanize thousands of animals in St. Johns County,” said Smith.
The Humane Society’s spay and neuter clinic regularly offers low fees for all pets every Tuesday with the cost for female cat spaying at $55, neutering for male cats at $45.Â Male dog neutering starts at $65 and female dog spaying starts at $75.Â The Humane Society will also help pet owners with special arrangements to cover the costs of spay and neutering.
Pet wellness appointments are available every Wednesday. To make reservations for the special male cat neutering opportunity and other pet sterilization and wellness appointments, call 904-829-2737. Visit the website at www.staugustinehumanesociety.org.
