Snip ‘n’ Chip launches in New Plymouth, Whanganui, Bulls and surrounding areas
SPCA has launched a Snip ’n’ Chip campaign, offering discounted desexing and microchipping to cat owners in New Plymouth, Whanganui, Bulls and surrounding areas.
Running from May 2020, the Snip ‘n’ Chip campaign will allow New Plymouth, Whanganui and Bulls residents to desex and microchip their cat or kitten for $10. This is just a fraction of the full price cost.
Every month, thousands of animals are brought into SPCA centres nationwide.
Desexing and responsible pet ownership are the only ways to address the cause of unwanted animals being abused and neglected.
“Desexing is one of the best things we can do for animal welfare in New Zealand,” says SPCA CEO Andrea Midgen.
“Not only will it help your pets have a happier and healthier life, but desexing ensures they don’t unknowingly or unexpectedly reproduce a litter of animals who are at risk of being abused and neglected.”
SPCA encourages all cat owners in these areas with undesexed or unmicrochipped cats or kittens to take up this fantastic offer.
They can purchase their Snip ‘n’ Chip voucher by visiting their local participating veterinary clinic. These veterinary clinics include
- St Aubyns Vet Clinic
- Bell Block Veterinary Clinic
- New Plymouth Vet Group
- Whanganui First Vets
- Wanganui Vet Services
- Southern Rangitikei Vet Services
This limited-time offer is only available until vouchers run out.
“We are so grateful to our participating vets for being involved in this campaign. They have played a huge part to improve animal welfare in New Plymouth, Whanganui, and Bulls,” says Ms Midgen.
“The aim for our campaigns is to also reach out to those who may not have considered having their pet desexed, or may not be able to afford it, and provide pet owners who do not currently have a local vet to get to know one.”
