The Winnipeg Humane Society is at an unseasonal low for its subsidized spay and neuter program.
SNAP helps pet owners on fixed or low incomes have their animals spayed or neuters for around $30 — averaging about 10 or more surgeries per day.
“It is concerning — we know there are unfixed cats out there making kittens and we can help,” said Dr. Erika Anseeuw, WHS director of animal health. “We held the very successful Beat the Heat program earlier this year, where we performed 500 spay surgeries in one month before cats entered their first heat. We want people to know they can fix their cat with us year-round.”
Similar surgeries at Winnipeg veterinarian clinics typically range between $125 and $225.
