Hokitika Snip 'n' Chip
Our Greymouth and Hokitika Snip 'n' Chip campaign is fully booked!
Thank you Greymouth and Hokitika for all your awesome work, we now have sold out of all our Snip 'n' Chip vouchers! We have had a huge response over the past few weeks, and we're sorry to disappoint anyone who missed out on making an appointment.
Thank you to everyone who purchased a Snip 'n' Chip voucher and spread the word, and to our generous supporters and West Coast Vets for making this possible.
To anyone who didn't manage to secure a spot, please contact your local vet and have a chat about booking in with them!
Together, we can make a difference in the lives of the hundreds of unwanted cats born each year in Greymouth and Hokitika.
We’ve been working on this campaign prior to the COVID-19 lockdown and are thrilled to announce our desexing campaign Snip ‘n’ Chip is back in Greymouth and Hokitika!
From Tuesday 25 August, we are working with West Coast Vets to offer heavily discounted desexing and microchipping for pet owners in Greymouth and Hokitika.
For a limited time, pet owners in Greymouth and Hokitika can Snip ‘n’ Chip their cats for $20. This is just a fraction of the full price cost.
Thanks to our friends at Bayer, we are also giving out one free Drontal wormer with every animal desexed.
Due to COVID-19 and our ever-changing alert levels, we ask pet owners in Greymouth pet owners to call our Greymouth Centre from Tuesday 25 August onwards to see if an appointment is necessary to secure their voucher.
Hokitika pet owners will still be able to visit our SPCA Hokitika Op Shop directly from Tuesday 25 August to secure their vouchers at the current alert level.
SPCA has worked hard in recent years to address the problem of too many animals being born unwanted and not living a good quality of life.
Our desexing campaign in Greymouth and Hokitika aims to reach out to those who cannot afford the desexing operation or may not normally consider having their pet desexed to use this opportunity.
It also provides the opportunity for pet owners who do not currently have a local vet to get to know one.
Pet owners have responded extremely well to our other Snip ‘n’ Chip campaigns across New Zealand.
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 and microchipping is one of the key ways to improve animal welfare in New Zealand and would like to thank West Coast Vets and Bayer in advance for their help with this campaign.
