Free Spay and Neuter San Franciso SPCA February 2011
Here’s an amazing announcement we just ran across: the San Francisco SPCA will offer free spay and neuter surgeries for cats and dogs of San Francisco residents throughout the month of February 2011. During February, pet owners can schedule appointments with the SF SPCA’s Spay/Neuter Clinic and receive the procedure for free.
“Overpopulation is the number one killer of cats and dogs in America. Spaying and neutering pets is vital for reducing the number of stray and homeless animals in the city,” said Jennifer Scarlett, D.V.M., co-president of the SF SPCA. “This investment by the SF SPCA is indicative of our strong belief in using preventative practices to reduce overpopulation and the resulting strains on the community’s animal shelters. We hope our efforts will encourage pet guardians across the city to make the responsible choice in having their pet spayed or neutered. If you want San Francisco to be a No-Kill city, the most important thing you can do is to spay or neuter your pet.”
The SF SPCA expects to accommodate more than 550 free spay/neuter procedures during the month of February, and appointments will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.
