PINELLAS PARK – Stop Pet Overpopulation Together is celebrating its fifth anniversary during the month of June with a Neuter-a-thon: $25 for male cats and $50 for male dogs under 40 pounds.
Pets need to be at least 3 pounds or 3 months old for surgery. On Tuesdays and Thursdays between 9 a.m. and noon, the clinic will offer $20 microchips and $5 nail trims.
SPOT’s Spay and Neuter clinic has done more than 20,000 spay and neuter surgeries and has helped another 30,000 pets with low cost vaccines in the past five years. By offering these services, it enables pet owners to afford keeping their pets instead of surrendering them to the shelters as well as preventing accidental and unwanted litters. Pet overpopulation is the No. 1 killer of pets in America. There are too many pets and not enough homes. Cats start reproducing as early as 4 months and dogs as early as 6 months. The humane solution is to spay and neuter them to prevent the litters, before they start.
To schedule a surgery appointment, call 329-8657. Surgeries are offered Monday through Thursday. Vaccine clinic is available on Monday and Wednesday between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. The microchip clinic is offered on Tuesday and Thursday between 9 a.m. and noon
The SPOT Spay & Neuter clinic is at 4403 62nd Ave.
