SPCA's Snip 'n' Chip launches in Southland

SPCA has launched a Snip ’n’ Chip campaign, offering free desexing and microchipping to Community Services Cardholders in Southland.

Running from Monday 16 March, the Snip ‘n’ Chip campaign will allow Southland 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 Southland with undesexed or unmicrochipped cats or dogs to take up this fantastic offer.

They can secure their spot by visiting SPCA’s Invercargill Centre at 22 Harewood Road, Clifton with their Community Services Card. This limited time offer is only available until bookings run out.

“We are so grateful to Waikiwi Vet Services for being involved in this campaign. They have played a huge part to improve animal welfare in Southland,” 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.”
