Charleston Animal Society and Pet Helpers join forces to help awareness of the importance of spaying and neutering animals in the Charleston area. The partnership kicked off with a new program—the Pet Protector program—which encourages people to get their pets spayed and/or neutered.
Both the Charleston Animal Society and Pet Helpers offer high quality, low fee spay and neuter services with skilled surgeons and high-tech operating rooms. Having your pets spayed / neutered pets is essential for many reasons. The procedure protects your pet’s health and controls pet overpopulation.
This simple procedure decreases animal suffering by preventing unwanted litters, thereby decreasing euthanasia. Last year 5,407 dogs and cats were euthanized in Charleston County, which is equivalent to 15 dogs and cats every day.
In addition to spreading awareness of the importance of spaying and neutering, the Pet Protector program provides incentives for owners to have their pets ‘fixed.’ When bringing in a pet to be spayed / neutered, the procedure will cost $50. This fixed fee will be valid through December 2011.
Pet owners will also receive a Pet Protector Savings booklet. The savings in this booklet will include coupons and deals from Charleston retailers on things like pet supplies pet food, grooming, toys and other pet products.
