DENVER (Feb. 28, 2012) The Dumb Friends League is offering $10 spay and neuter surgeries for kittens and cats on our mobile clinics. The promotion kicks off on World Spay Day, Feb. 28, and continues through June 30.

World Spay Day is an international campaign that shines a spotlight on spaying and neutering to help save the lives of companion animals. The campaign promotes spay/neuter as a simple, humane and effective way to curb pet overpopulation and reduce the number of homeless pets that are euthanized here in the United States and abroad.

“It is essential that people who have unaltered cats get them spayed or neutered as soon as possible,” said Theresa Geary, vice president of operations with the League. “Cat overpopulation is a problem in many communities, and Denver is no exception.”

Bring a pet to one of the League’s mobile clinics by 7:30 a.m. The pet will be ready for pickup between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. the same day. No appointment is necessary. Each cat is required to arrive in a carrier or secured container. Owners will receive home care instructions.

“Having a cat spayed or neutered before 5 months of age can help it live a happier, healthier and longer life,” said Geary.

The Dumb Friends League mobile clinics provide donor-subsidized spay and neuter surgeries to pets in underserved communities within the Denver metro area. Each surgery is performed by a veterinarian licensed in the state of Colorado.
