As warm summer months approach, Animal Friends would like to remind pet owners that spaying and neutering is more important now than ever. Spaying or neutering can curb a pet's instinct to roam and can make your pet less likely to run away. Keep this in mind when you and your pet spend more time outdoors in the nice weather.
By having you pet spayed or neutered, you:
- help curb pet overpopulation, and prevent unwanted pets from being euthanized
- reduce your pet’s risk of cancer and infection
- make your pet less likely to run away
- ensure a calmer, happier companion.
We at Animal Friends know that surgery costs can be too high for some pet owners. But, our high quality, Low-Cost Spay and Neuter clinic is open to the public and taking applications daily.
Right now, we have very few applications pending so your low-cost surgery will be scheduled promptly! Please consider applying today by visiting www.ThinkingOutsideTheCage.org.
And, Animal Friends' Project Pit Bull is a great way for Pit Bull owners to have their Pit Bulls spayed or neutered. The project was created to address the disproportionate number of unwanted Pit Bulls in
Pittsburgh’s animal shelters, and in response to the fact that many Pit Bulls are bred in great numbers for dog fighting. This special program offers $20 spay or neuter surgeries to owners who want to be responsible with the breed.
Visit www.ThinkingOutsideTheCage.org or call 1.800.SPAY.PGH to apply for a low-cost spay or neuter surgery today.
If you are a city of
resident, the City is offering free spay/neuter surgeries. Visit www.ThinkingOutsideTheCage.org for more information. Pittsburgh
