They may be just babies, but kittens as young as 4 months and puppies as young as 5 months are old enough to get pregnant and have their first litter just two months later.
That’s why the Central Oklahoma Humane Society, with funding provided by PetSmart Charities, the largest funder of animal welfare efforts in North America, is introducing the “Precious, Not Parents” campaign. Through the “Precious, Not Parents,” campaign, OK Humane will provide $20 spay and neuter surgeries for puppies and kittens under six months of age during the month of June.
Some pet parents may worry that their pet is too young for this procedure, but spaying and neutering is safe and easy for kittens and puppies as young as eight to 10 weeks old, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association.
This special $20 rate is even less than the organization’s normal low-cost priced and is available to all residents of Oklahoma. Pet parents who wish to take advantage of this offer must mention the “Precious, Not Parents” campaign when they call to schedule their appointment or enter the note PNP2016 when they book online. The campaign is based on availability.
