Snip 'n' Chip launches in Taumarunui
SPCA has launched a Snip ’n’ Chip campaign, offering subsidised desexing and microchipping to cat owners in Taumarunui.
Running from 16 October, the Snip ‘n’ Chip campaign will allow Taumarunui 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 Taumarunui 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 vet. These vets include VetEnt Taumarunui and Totally Vets Taumarunui.
This limited time offer is only available until bookings 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 Taumarunui,” 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.”
