LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The Kentucky Humane Society is starting out the new year hoping to curb cat overpopulation.
The nonprofit announced they will be offering $20 neutering for male cats at the KHS S.N.I.P. Clinic in Louisville during the month of January. It’s part of their “Happy Neuter Year” campaign.
“Neutering male pets is a simple surgery that reduces unwanted behaviors, like roaming, fighting, and urine marking,” says Karen Koenig, KHS Vice President of Animal Welfare. “It also guarantees your animal does not add to the pet overpopulation problem.”
The clinic normally offers neutering of male cats for $50.
The clinic offers spay and neutering surgeries for dogs and cats. KHS says spaying and neutering of animals helps to curb overpopulation and says since opening in 2007 they have seen a 50 percent reduction in the number of animals turned in to Louisville shelters.
