SPCA Offers Spay/Neuter Specials April 4-8 during National Prevention of Animal Cruelty & Human Violence Week
In recognition of National Prevention of Animal Cruelty & Human Violence week, the SPCA of Texas is offering spay/neuter surgery specials for male and female cats and dogs—$35 for males, $45 for females—the week of April 4-8 at both its Dallas and McKinney clinics.

In addition, any donations made above and beyond the surgery cost will benefit the SPCA’s Rescue & Investigations Department.

“Spaying and neutering helps reduce the number of neglected and homeless animals that often fall victim to animal cruelty,” said Anita Kelso Edson, SPCA of Texas spokeswoman. 

To make an appointment for your pet’s spay/neuter surgery, please call (214) 651-9611 ext. 116 or 133 in Dallas and (972) 562-7297 ext. 105 in McKinney. Proof of vaccines are required (rabies and combo shots) or they will be administered at a cost of $17 each. Additional charges will also apply to females who are pregnant or in heat or cryptorchid males (undescended testicles). 

The entire month of April is dedicated to fighting animal cruelty, and the SPCA of Texas asks the public to remember that victims of family violence often include pets, who may be threatened, injured or killed by a violent family member to control or intimidate other members of the household. Just like other family members, animals need a place to be safe. To make life more humane for our animal friends: 

* If you witness or hear about animal cruelty, please report it! This includes animals being tortured, forced to fight, or denied food, water or shelter. Contact the SPCA’s R&I Department at 1-888-ANIMALS ext. 120 or Click Here to send an email.

* Spread the word about the importance of responsible pet ownership, which includes spaying and neutering and vaccinating to prevent more unwanted and potentially neglected, abused and sick animals.

* Make sure your pets are wearing identification at all times. This could prevent them from becoming lost and falling into abusive hands.

* Adopt your next pet from among the many animals available at local shelters. Many have been victims of cruelty and are awaiting a second chance at life.

* Take part in passing humane laws and support animal-friendly legislation.
