Nutmeg and Pet Smart Charities join to offer affordable spay/neuter for cats and dogs

They may be just babies, but kittens as young as 4 months and puppies as young as 5 months are old enough to get pregnant and have their first litter just two months later. “These precious babies shouldn’t be parents at 5 and 6 months old,” says Clara Nolan, Executive Director of the Nutmeg Spay/Neuter Clinic.
That’s why Nutmeg, with funding provided by PetSmart Charities, the largest funder of animal welfare efforts in North America, is introducing the “Precious, Not Parents” campaign. Through the “Precious, Not Parents,” campaign, Nutmeg Spay/Neuter Clinic will provide $20 spay and neuter surgeries for puppies and kittens under six months of age during the month of June. There are a limited amount of surgeries for this offer, so book early: Only puppies and kittens under 6 months old qualify.
Some pet parents may worry that their pet is too young for this procedure, but spaying and neutering is safe and easy for kittens and puppies as young as 12 weeks old, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association. In fact, Nutmeg has performed more than 800 pediatric spay/neuter surgeries since 2012.
“Many owners put off the procedure and wait until the puppy or kitten is six to eight months old,” says Nolan. “But by then, a litter of puppies or kittens can be born.”
This special $20 rate is even less than the organization’s normal low-cost priced and is available to all residents. Pet parents who wish to take advantage of this offer must mention the “Precious, Not Parents” campaign when they call to schedule their appointment. This campaign is based on availability. Nutmeg Spay/Neuter Clinic will provide 100 “Precious, Not Parents,” sterilizations for $20 in June, so book early to take advantage of this offer. Please visit www.nutmegclinic.org or call 203-690-1550 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
PetSmart Charities’ “Precious, Not Parents” campaign provides more than $593,000 to spay/neuter clinics to fund affordable, high-quality spay and neuter surgeries for more than 12,000 puppies and kittens across the nation during the month of June.
