Norfolk, Va. – This September, all of PETA’s mobile clinics will offer unbeatable Bark to School spay/neuter specials ($40 for dogs and $20 for cats) for animals who are between 3 and 80 pounds and over 12 weeks old.
When: September 1–30 (Appointments are required and can be made by calling PETA at 757-622-PETA (7382), extension 3, or by visiting PETA.org/SpayNeuter.)
Where: Boykins, Chesapeake, Emporia, Franklin, Hopewell, Isle of Wight County, Newport News, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Prince George, Smithfield, Suffolk, and Surry
“PETA’s low-cost spay and neuter surgeries allow us to care for the health and well-being of companion animals and save lives at the same time,” says PETA Senior Vice President Daphna Nachminovitch. “For every dog and cat who gets the gift of being ‘snipped’ this September, countless more won’t be born into a world already bursting at the seams with homeless animals.”
Every year, more than 6 million dogs and cats end up in animal shelters across the U.S., and half of them must be euthanized because there aren’t enough good homes for them. The solution is simple: spaying and neutering. Since 2001, PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way”—has performed low-cost spay and neuter surgeries for more than 145,000 dogs, cats, and rabbits, including more than 15,000 in 2016.
