Due to popular demand, the group is once again offering its “Beat the Heat” promotion and will spay female cats for a limited time for the special rate of $20. The special rate applies to anyone in Northwest Ohio or Southeast Michigan.
And, since male cats are half of the cat overpopulation problem and play a role in the birth of unwanted litters, Humane Ohio also plans to celebrate “NO Father’s Day” and will neuter male cats during June for $20. The promotion is also available to anyone in Northwest Ohio or Southeast Michigan and is based on availability.
“Our NO Father’s Day promotion is a good opportunity to remind pet parents how important it is to neuter male pets,” said Dr. Kelly Rada, Humane Ohio Medical Director “People naturally think to spay females because they’re the ones who have the litters, but male animals are just as guilty of contributing to pet overpopulation as the females are.
“Both promotions are a great way for us to help even more cat owners in need of financial assistance because we reduce our normal low-cost rate even further during these promotions, and they’re a good way for us to help pets since spaying and neutering can have health benefits and eliminate or reduce bad behaviors associated with breeding,” she added.
