Thanks to Summerlee Foundation 35 Felines Were Spayed and Neutered

On May 20th and 22nd, our clinic held a reduced fee of $25 feline spay and neuter event which aimed to provide affordable spay/neuters for our low-income community. Through this event, made possible by the Summerlee Foundation, 35 kitties were spayed and neutered.

Spaying and neutering animals is not just a procedure, it’s a responsibility. It’s a way to ensure our pets live longer, healthier lives. By reducing the number of unwanted animals that end up at shelters or abandoned as strays, it’s a way to protect our community. And by significantly impacting your pet’s life expectancy, it’s a way to show your pet how much you care. Spaying and neutering can also reduce unwanted behaviors such as urine-marking, spraying, and aggressive behavior, making your pet’s life more comfortable and enjoyable.[1]

This program provides the opportunity for low-income individuals to affordably spay and neuter their animals, not only benefiting their pet’s health, but positively impacting the greater community. Spokane Humane Society’s clinic offers many services for low-income individuals including spaying and neutering, vaccines, micro-chipping at a fraction of regular costs.
