Chocolate and candy can make you fat, celebrate this Valentine’s Day by saying “I love you.” with a cat! In celebration of Valentine’s Day, The Kent County Health Department is offering free spay and neuter services for all cat adoptions, for one week only. This offer, valued at up to $70, is free.
This program is a partnership between Vicky’s Pet Connection (VPC) and the Kent County Animal Shelter (KCAS). VPC and KCAS have been teaming up, providing services to help find homes for adoptable pets since 2000. Vicky’s Pet Connection is a non-profit animal rescue group, established in 1998, that has agreed to pay the spay/neuter fee on all adopted cats. Typically, male cat neutering fee is $55 and a female cat spay fee is $70; however for this coming week, it will be free. This ultimately lowers the adoption price to only $50, which covers a feline leukemia/FIV test, RCPC vaccination and a microchip ID implant.
“We are proud of our community partnership with Vicky’s Pet Connection and this program is a great initiative to help our homeless cats find loving homes,” said Cathy Raevsky, Administrative Health Officer for the Kent Count Health Department. “Most important, spaying and neutering your cat is part of responsible pet ownership, and it helps cats live longer and healthier lives.”
The free spay and neuter services for cat adoptions runs from Monday, February 14th through Saturday, February 19th. The event will take place at the Kent County Animal Shelter, located at 740 Fuller Ave., NE. Adoption hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Saturday.
