SPCA's Snip 'n' Chip launches in Wairoa
SPCA is launching a Snip ‘n’ Chip campaign, offering discounted desexing and microchipping to cat owners in Wairoa.
From 17 December, the Snip ‘n’ Chip campaign will allow Wairoa residents to desex and microchip their cat for just $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 born, and at risk of being neglected and continuing the cycle of unwanted litters.
“Desexing is one of the best things we can do for animal welfare in New Zealand,” says SPCA CEO Andrea Midgen.
“In the past year, we have been able to desk thousands of animals in over 20 communities across the country. We are thrilled to be able to bring Snip ‘n’ Chip to the Wairoa community, especially right ahead of the peak of kitten season - our busiest time of year,” she says.
“Not only will it help your pets have a happier and healthier life, but desexing ensures the cycle of unwanted litters is broken, and people’s companion animals don’t unknowingly or unexpectedly reproduce more litters of animals.”
SPCA encourages all cat owners in Wairoa with pets that aren’t desexed or microchipped to take up this fantastic offer. This is a limited time offer only available until vouchers sell out.
Snip ‘n’ Chip vouchers can be purchased by visiting participating vet clinics including, Coast Vets Ltd and Eastland Veterinary Services Wairoa.
“We’re so grateful to our participating vets for being involved in this campaign. They have played a huge part to improve animal welfare in Wairoa,” says Ms Midgen.
“One of the objectivesof the Snip ‘n’ Chip campaigns is to reach out to those people 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.”
