$40 neuter surgeries for male cats at WHS Spay/Neuter Clinic
Milwaukee, WI – The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) has announced a special promotion in honor of Spay Day USA, which is February 23, 2016. Spay Day USA is a national day of action to reduce animal overpopulation and thus, prevent animal suffering.
Neuter surgeries for male cats occurring February 29 – March 11 at the WHS Spay/Neuter Clinic in West Allis are just $40, nearly 50% off the regular fee. Appointments are limited, so book soon.
The $40 fee includes a pre-surgical exam, neuter surgery, pain medication, and complimentary nail trim. Vaccinations ($10 rabies is required if not already vaccinated) and microchipping are also available during the appointment at an additional cost.
This promotion was made possible by the generous support of Bridget and Mark Kirkish, in honor of Butch, Seamus, O’Malley and Sox.
The WHS Spay/Neuter Clinic opened June 1, 2015 at the corner of Lincoln and National Avenues. Milwaukee had previously been one of the only major metropolitan communities in the country without a spay/neuter clinic. With two full-time veterinarians on staff, the focus of the new clinic is to provide high-quality, affordable spay/neuter surgery to the general public.
Spaying or neutering cats and dogs reduces animal overpopulation and animal homelessness. It can also reduce some behavior issues and decreases the desire of animals to roam. In addition, altered animals live longer than their unaltered counterparts, and are protected from certain types of cancer.
