CAHS Offering $20 Spay/Neuter Surgeries

By FOX 47 News . CREATED May 12, 2014

Lansing, MI—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.

That is why Capital Area Humane Society (CAHS), with funding provided by PetSmart Charities, is introducing the “Precious, Not Parents” campaign. Through the “Precious, Not Parents” campaign, CAHS will provide $20 spay and neuter surgeries for puppies and kittens under six months of age during the month of June.

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 eight to 10-weeks-old, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association. In fact, Capital Area Humane Society has performed pediatric spay/neuter surgeries for many years.

“Pet owners may put off the procedure and wait until the puppy or kitten is six to eight-months-old,” says Julia Palmer, President and CEO of Capital Area Humane Society. “But by then, a litter of puppies or kittens can be born.”

This special $20 is available to everyone and is based on availability.

Capital Area Humane Society will provide 150 “Precious, Not Parents” sterilizations in June. Please visit or call (517) 908-0756 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
