MORE INFORMATION: The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) will end the catcalls for 100 male felines in the Louisville area next weekend. On Saturday, July 21, the S.N.I.P. Clinic will host a “Neuter-a-Thon” to neuter male cats, with already scheduled appointments, at a special rate of just $10.
“Neutering your male kitten before he reaches six months of age is ideal, as it limits spraying to mark territory or nights spent ‘on the prowl,’ ” said S.N.I.P. Clinic Director Emily Clement.
“Also, an altered pet leads a longer, healthier life. In fact, neutered cats can live an average of three to five years longer because they are less likely to roam and get into fights, while they also have a lowered risk for contracting certain diseases and developing cancer,” said Clement.
The Neuter-a-Thon is limited to the first 100 male cats signed up for the event. Cat owners must call the S.N.I.P. Clinic in advance to schedule an appointment at 502-636-3491. Low-cost vaccinations are also available at the time of surgery.
The full-time, low-cost S.N.I.P. Clinic is the region’s only clinic dedicated entirely to spay/neuter. Since opening in 2007, the clinic has altered more than 47,000 cats and dogs. Neuter surgeries for male cats typically cost $39 at the S.N.I.P. Clinic.
