SPCA's Snip 'n' Chip comes to South Canterbury

29 June 2020
SPCA's Snip 'n' Chip comes to South Canterbury

SPCA has launched a Snip ’n’ Chip campaign, offering discounted desexing and microchipping to pet owners in South Canterbury.

Beginning 29 June, the Snip ‘n’ Chip campaign will allow South Canterbury residents to desex and microchip their cat for $20, or their dog for $30. 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 pet owners in South Canterbury with undesexed or unmicrochipped pets to take up this fantastic offer.

They can purchase their Snip ‘n’ Chip voucher by calling SPCA’s Timaru Centre from 29 June on 03 688 2334.

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 South Canterbury,” 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.”
