Warmer weather may still be months away, but Young-Williams Animal Center Spay/Neuter Solutions wants you to “Beat the Heat” by spaying your cat in advance of her heat cycle and preventing unwanted litters from being born this spring. Animal shelters commonly refer to spring time as “kitten season” because that is when they receive the largest influx numbers of unwanted litters that are difficult to adopt.
That’s why Young-Williams Animal Center Spay/Neuter solutions is offering a special “Beat the Heat” campaign sponsored by PetSmart Charities, the largest funder of animal welfare efforts in North America. Through the “Beat the Heat” campaign, Young-Williams will provide $20 spay and neuter surgeries for female cats during the month of February.
Spaying and neutering is one of the most effective ways to reduce the homeless pet population and is safe for kittens as young as eight to 10 weeks old, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association. Spaying a female cat before the first heat cycle can be beneficial, improving the health of the pet by reducing the risk of certain reproductive cancers and infections.
This $20 rate is even less than the organization’s normal low-cost price and is available to anyone, regardless of residence. Cat parents who wish to take advantage of this offer must mention the “Beat the Heat” campaign when they schedule their appointment. This campaign is based on availability. Please call 865-215-6677 to schedule an appointment today.
