Auckland Snip 'n' ChipAuckland
Snip ‘n’ Chip is back!
We are now offering free feline desexing and microchipping for owners throughout Auckland who hold either a Community Services Card or Gold Card.
If you don’t hold either of these, you can still take advantage of this programme by purchasing discounted desexing and microchipping vouchers for $45.
SPCA’s Mangere Centre has worked hard in recent years to address the problem of too many kittens being born unwanted.
To provide free desexing to as wide a community as possible, the vouchers will allow anyone across Auckland to use the offer.
The aim is to reach out to those who cannot afford the desexing operation or may not normally consider having their cat desexed to use this opportunity.
Registrations are now open.
Cat owners have responded extremely well to our free campaigns and we have seen close to 5,000 cats and kittens desexed over the last two years!
Scientific research has proven that a desexed animal lives a happier and healthier life. They are less likely to get into fights, can be more affectionate and friendly and have a reduced risk of health problems such as cancer.
We believe desexing is one of the key ways to improve animal welfare in New Zealand, and would like to thank the participating vets in advance for their help with the campaign.
Vouchers (free or paid) are valid for 3 months after issuing. There is a limit of 10 free vouchers per registration.
