West Palm Beach, FL- (October 12, 2018) Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League will offer free spay and neuter surgeries on Tuesday, October 16, 2018. This event is open to domestic cats belonging to all residents of Palm Beach County, Florida. Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League's goal is to spay/neuter a total of 250 owned cats this day.
Peggy Adams is working hard to help end euthanasia due to pet-overpopulation by providing affordable services to Palm Beach County pet owners. In addition to being spayed/neutered, each cat will be given a FVRCP+CH vaccine, Rabies vaccine, and will be microchipped. Palm Beach County Ordinance 98-22 requires cats to be spayed or neutered and microchipped by four months of age unless medically contraindicated. All cats participating in this event will be microchipped unless they already have a microchip. Pain meds and e-collars are strongly recommended and available for an additional charge.
Pet owners can submit an application and review pre and post-surgical instructions online at Applications must be received by noon on Monday, October 15th. Check-in time is 7am - 9am; Check-out time is 5pm. Cats must arrive in a secure, size appropriate cat carrier; no cardboard carriers; and one cat per carrier.
"There are so many reasons to have your pet spayed or neutered," said Rich Anderson, Executive Director/CEO at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. “Most importantly, it’s been scientifically proven that pets who are spayed or neutered live longer and healthier lives. From a community perspective, there are thousands of homeless animals entering shelters each year. Unfortunately, many do not find their forever home; spaying/neutering is the only permanent, 100 percent effective method of birth control for cats and dogs. It’s proven to be the most effective way to control the pet population."
