The staff at East Hill Dog and Cat Hospital are donating their time until Saturday to spay and neuter all unaltered guest dogs and at least 20 guest cats residing at the Red Deer and District SPCA as part of a Fix-A-Thon.
“Altering a pet prior to his adoption can assist with him finding a forever home sooner,” said Julie Crawford, the SPCA’s executive director.
“This is truly a remarkable gift. it will help reduce costs for families considering adopting a furry family member, which will ultimately result in more of our pets finding homes this holiday season.”
Red Deer and District SPCA requires all pets adopted from its facility to be spayed or neutered before leaving with their new families in order to help curb Central Alberta’s animal population.
East Hill Dog and Cat Hospital staff encourage other area veterinary clinics to assist Red Deer and District SPCA by providing free spays and neuters, as well as the Central Alberta community by donating money to support the SPCA.
Donations to Red Deer and District SPCA can be made through the website at www.reddeerspca.com, by calling 403-342-7722 or by stopping by East Hill Dog and Cat Hospital at 420, 3020 22nd St.
