Limited income? Apply to have pets spayed/neutered for $10 | News
Spay Neuter Services of Indiana (SNSI) is offering $10 spays and neuters to help pets, pet owners and caretakers. The half price special is available to Indiana residents with limited incomes and those who receive public assistance. The Pet Friendly License Plate Committee, appointed by SNSI, oversees the distribution of funds from Indiana Pet Friendly license plate sales which make this program possible. It is available until August 31.
Spaying and neutering can help curb the overpopulation problem and keep shelters from having to put healthy dogs and cats to sleep for no other reason than not having enough space.
Puppies and kittens can be spayed as young as six weeks or two pounds at certain veterinary clinics. Because males can cause reproduction and females can become pregnant while very young, SNSI is urging owners to plan surgeries for four months of age, depending upon their veterinarian’s recommendation.
Locations offering the $10 spay/neuter include: ARK Veterinary Services, Inc. 1301 E. Missouri Street, Highland Veterinary Clinic, 6805 Darmstadt Rd., and Vanderburgh Humane Society, 400 Millner Dr. and Evansville Veterinary Center, 6211 Maxwell Ave.
Additional information regarding the SNSI $10 offer and a list of Participating Veterinarians are available at www.GetThemFixed.org where the application can be viewed and printed. Or call 317-767-7771. The application must be postmarked by August 31. The group urges animal advocates to print out the application, make copies and offer them available to Indiana schools, libraries, businesses, and public assistance offices and maybe even offer to pay the $10 fee for someone who could use a helping hand.
