Snip 'n' Chip launches in Tokoroa
SPCA has launched a Snip ’n’ Chip campaign offering subsidised desexing and microchipping to cat owners in Tokoroa.
Beginning Monday 11 November 2019, the Snip ‘n’ Chip campaign will allow Tokoroa residents with a Community Services Card to desex and microchip their female cat/kitten for $30, or their male cat/kitten for just $25. 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 Community Services Card holders in Tokoroa with undesexed or unmicrochipped cats or kittens to take up this fantastic offer.
They can book their cat in by visiting SPCA’s Tokoroa Centre at 16 Giles St, Tokoroa, with their community services card.
“We are so grateful to South Waikato Vet Services and Grassroots for being involved in this campaign. Our participating local vet has played a huge part to improve animal welfare in Tokoroa,” 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.”
