Pet Community Center offers low cost spay/neuter services

pets 8-20-15Spaying and neutering provides health benefits for pets and helps fight pet overpopulation.

That’s why Pet Community Center is launching a “Back to School” campaign that offers $20 off spay + neuter services during the month of August.

“Spaying/neutering a pet is the most effective thing a pet parent can do to prevent unwanted litters from being born that will ultimately end up in local shelters,” says Dr. Mike Greenberg, medical director for Pet Community Center.

Some pet parents may be hesitant to get their young puppies and kittens sterilized. But the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) endorses spaying and neutering puppies and kittens as young as eight to 10 weeks old. Research also shows that the procedure may improve the behavior and health of the pet, including reducing the risk of certain reproductive cancers and infections.

This special discounted rate is available to all residents of Middle Tennessee through the end of August. Pet parents who wish to take advantage of this offer should mention the “Back to School” campaign when they call to schedule their appointment. The campaign is based on availability and can not be combined with the “Primp Your Pit” or other offers.

Pet parents should call 615-512-5001 or visit the online appointment page at petcommunitycenter.org/ and mention BACK TO SCHOOL.

The Pet Community Center has been serving local pets since October 2011. During that time, it has served more than 10,000 animals. According to Metro Animal Control, spay and neuter services are a major contributing factor in decreasing pet overpopulaion and unwanted animals.
