Snip 'n' Chip launches in Westport
SPCA has launched a Snip ’n’ Chip campaign in Westport for the first time, offering discounted desexing and microchipping to cat owners in Westport.
Beginning Tuesday 9 July, the Snip ‘n’ Chip campaign will allow Westport residents with a Community Card 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 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 Card holders in Westport with undesexed or unmicrochipped cats or kittens to take up this fantastic offer.
They can purchase their Snip ‘n’ Chip voucher by visiting SPCA’s Westport Centre at 68 Mill Street. The voucher is valid for three months and can be redeemed at Buller Vets.
“We are so grateful to Buller Vets and the Trusts Community Foundation for being involved in this campaign.Our participating local vet has played a huge part to improve animal welfare in Westport,” 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.”
