SPCA Bring Free Desexing To East Coast Communities
Cat and dog owners along the East Coast can soon get their pet desexed for free, as part of a new initiative by the SPCA.
The SPCA Desexing Caravan, which will provide free desexing, microchipping, vaccination, and flea and worming services to pet owners, will travel around the East Coast later this month.
The caravan will begin its journey in Ruatoria on August 22nd and will continue on to locations including Te Araroa, Waihau Bay, Te Kaha, Ōpōtiki, Tokomaru Bay and Tolaga Bay.
It's on of the SPCA’s initiatives to make these important procedures more accessible to Kiwis who require a helping hand.
SPCA National Desexing Programme Manager Rebecca Dobson says, the SPCA are offering these vital procedures free of charge to East Coast pet owners, to combat the disproportionately large numbers of cats and dogs in this region that haven’t been desexed.
“With the Desexing Caravan, we hope to desex large numbers of animals in these communities where the need is high, to bring down the rates of breeding and ultimately reduce the number of unwanted litters.” Dobson says.
For living on the East Coast who wish to get their pet desexed, call 022 567 7993 or check out the listings on the SPCA website here.
