Discounted Spay and Neuter Rates Available in February

By Jennifer Bush, HSSV Volunteer
February is National Spay/Neuter Month, and Humane Society Silicon Valley is offering discounted rates to spay or neuter your dog or cat. If you have a four-legged friend who is at least 4 months old and hasn’t been spayed/neutered, HSSV’s experienced veterinarians can provide the safe, high-quality surgery your pet needs to live a long and healthy life.

If you still need convincing, read the ASPCA’s Top 10 Reasons to Spay or Neuter Your Pet. The surgery provides important health benefits, including a longer life expectancy, lower rates of certain cancers, and fewer behavior problems.

By spaying and neutering your pet, not only are you providing the care your pet deserves, but you’re also helping the entire community. Even if you have indoor-only pets, spaying and neutering helps control the population of unwanted and stray animals, many of whom end up in shelters. In fact, if a male and female cat and their offspring are left to breed on their own, they can have over 2,000 cats in just five years!

Last year alone, HSSV performed more than 5,250 spay and neuter surgeries. Do your part! Participate in National Spay/Neuter Month by spreading the word or scheduling an appointment for your furry best friend.

Pricing, qualifications, and other details can be found at the HSSV website, or call 408-262-2133, x108 to make an appointment.
