The Animal Welfare League of Arlington is offering discounted spay and neuter service for low-income pet owners during the month of February.
In recognition of World Spay Day, AWLA will be offering low-cost spays and neuters on four days: Feb. 3, 10, 17 and 24. Participants must bring proof that their annual household income is $40,000 or less. The service will cost $25 for male cats and $50 for female cats and all dogs.
“Spaying cats and dogs eliminates the possibility of uterine and ovarian cancer, while neutering eliminates the possibility of testicular cancer,” AWLA noted in a press release. “Spaying and neutering reduces the potential for territorial marking, especially in your home, makes pets less likely to run away, and helps to reduce aggressive behavior, especially in dogs.”
“We do have limited space for this event, so if you qualify and would like to register your pet, please send an e-mail to Kimberly Harman at [email protected] or call her at (703) 931-9241 x246,” the AWLA added.
World Spay Day, promoted by the Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International, is Feb. 28.
