SPCA's Snip 'n' Chip launches in Central Otago
SPCA has launched a Snip ’n’ Chip campaign, offering free desexing and microchipping to pet owners in Central Otago.
Running from 1 July, the Snip ‘n’ Chip initiative will allow Central Otago residents with a Community Services Card to desex and microchip their cat or dog for free.
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 Cardholders in Central Otago with pets that aren’t desexed or microchipped to take up this fantastic offer.
Bookings can be made by emailing SPCA at firstname.lastname@example.org with the limited time offer only available until spaces 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 Central Otago,” 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.”
