Kent Animal Shelter To Spay/Neuter 60 Ferals with Grant from Pet Peeves, Inc.
Calverton, NY - March 7, 2014 - Kent Animal Shelter of Calverton is offering $20 spay/neuters for 60 feral cats, a discounted rate made possible through a grant from Pet Peeves, Inc. A rabies vaccination and ear notching will be included. Appointments are required. To make an appointment, call Kent Animal Shelter’s clinic at (631) 727-7797.
Pet Peeves is a Woodbury non-profit umbrella organization that raises money and awareness for Long Island animal shelters and rescue groups.
“Our organization is grateful to Pet Peeves for helping us to get out in front of kitten season,” said Pam Green, Executive Director of Kent Animal Shelter. Each spring, cats that haven’t been sterilized produce so many kittens that finding homes for all of them is impossible.
Spay/neuter is a surgical birth control procedure. It reduces pet homelessness, overpopulation, starvation, property destruction, cruelty and euthanasia associated with unwanted kittens in the community.
Through private donations and grants, Kent Animal Shelter has been able to provide low cost spaying and neutering at its clinic. More information is available by visiting KentAnimalShelter.com or by calling (631) 727-7797. The clinic is open Monday through Saturday from 10AM to 4PM, by appointment only.
