Vouchers Available To Help With Cat Spay Or Neuter

Advertisement

The Humane Society of Central Arizona and its affiliates are firm believers in spaying and neutering because it saves lives. Spaying and neutering is very important and there are a few programs locally that can assist you, as well as other programs throughout the state.

HSCAZ is currently offering vouchers for cat spay and neuters. We received a PetSmart grant that will help people residing on the west side of the Beeline Highway fix their felines. For more information or questions regarding a voucher, please contact HSCAZ by calling (928) 474-5590, or stop by the new shelter any day of the week from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Remember, 4 million animals are euthanized a year, so please help reduce that number by spaying and neutering.

Benefits of spaying

• Prevents pregnancy and the complications arising from pregnancy and delivery.

• Eliminates the heat cycle — you won’t have to listen to the sounds of your female in heat, trying to get out and find a mate.

• Prevents unwelcome males from trying to seek out your female pet in heat.

• Reduces the urge to roam. This makes it less likely that you will lose your pet, which in turn makes your pet less likely to contract a disease, get in a fight, get injured, or become a victim of cruelty, poison or traffic.

• Eliminates sexual discomfort, distress or distraction, making your pet happier and more content.

• Reduces or eliminates the possibility of disease in the reproductive system.

Benefits of neutering

• Reduces the distracting and destructive behavior associated with the male’s efforts to get out and find a mate.

• Reduces the urge to roam. This makes it less likely that you will lose your pet, which in turn makes your pet less likely to contract a disease, get in a fight, get injured or become a victim of cruelty, poison or traffic.

• Eliminates sexual discomfort, distress or distraction, making your pet happier and more content.

• Eliminates testicular tumors and reduces prostate gland problems.

• In cats, neutering stops or reduces marking behavior (territorial spraying of urine).

• Reduces the urge to fight.

Adoption special

You can help with the problem of pet overpopulation by adopting your next companion from a shelter or rescue group. For the month of July, we are running an adoption special. All kittens and cats are just $25, and dogs and puppies are $45 for all approved adopters. Come by and see some of our adorable adoptables. The new shelter is located off McLane Road just south of Main Street. Turn west on the dirt road between the dip and Kyle’s Auto, then follow it around to the new building. We are open 7 days a week from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. You can also view our available animals on our Web site at www. humanesocietycentralaz.org.
