Humane Ohio Offers Beat The Heat Promo
Warmer weather may still be months away, but Humane Ohio wants pet parents to “Beat the Heat” by spaying female cats before their heat cycles and preventing unwanted litters from being born this spring. Animal shelters commonly refer to springtime as “kitten season” because that is when they receive the largest numbers of unwanted litters that are difficult to adopt.
To help reduce the number of homeless cats born this spring, Humane Ohio is offering a special “Beat the Heat” promotion, funded by a grant from PetSmart Charities, the leading funder of animal welfare in North America. During February and March, the nonprofit organization will spay owned female cats for a special rate of $20.00. Cat parents who wish to take advantage of this offer must mention the “Beat the Heat” promotion when they schedule their appointments. Availability is limited.
Spay/neuter is one of the most effective ways to reduce the homeless pet population. Female cats can have three litters a year, and kittens can breed as young as 4 months old. Spaying a female cat before the first heat cycle is actually beneficial, rather than waiting until after one heat cycle has occurred. The procedure is known to improve the health of the pet, including a reduced risk of certain reproductive cancers and infections.
Humane Ohio’s goal is to eliminate pet homelessness in our community by offering high-quality, affordable spay/neuter, and the “Beat the Heat” promotion is a fun way to reach out to the community and prevent unwanted litters.
Thanks to the PetSmart Charities grant, Humane Ohio will be able to spay 800 owned female cats at the special $20.00 rate during February and March.
