Need a nearby low-cost spay/neuter clinic?

Here’s a quick and easy way to find it!
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) has set up a special Web site with a searchable database designed to provide you with updated information about low-cost spay/neuter programs in your community.

It’s quick and it’s easy.

Try it:

After asking you for your zip code, and how far you’re willing to travel to get your pet(s) spayed or neutered (5 miles? 10 miles?) … the database will show you ALL the nearby discounted spay/neuter clinics.

This Web site is updated regularly.

Ed Sayers, ASPCA president and CEO, says:
“Spaying and neutering is the proven most effective method in reducing pet overpopulation. By reducing pet overpopulation from the ‘supply side,’ we limit the need for euthanasia as a means of population control.”

Check it out. This is a VERY handy Web site! /Gary
