The Humane Society of the Treasure Coast (HSTC) is participating in the World Spay Day Event, sponsored by the HSTC and the Spay Neuter Coalition, 8 a.m. - 8 p.m., Feb. 25, 4100 SW Leighton Farm Ave., Palm City.
The program’s goal is to increase awareness of the importance of spaying and neutering one’s pet. During World Spay Day, pre-registered pet owners will drop their pet off at different intervals throughout the day for surgical sterilization. The HSTC has 70 appointments available for sterilization. The event is planned to go on until all of the scheduled animals have received surgery.
The cost of the surgery is $60 for dogs, $40 for rabbits, and $30 for cats. The fee will cover the sterilization, microchip, and rabies vaccination (if the pet is at least four months old at the time of surgery). To sign up, call the HSTC at 772-223-8822.
“We still have spots available and they can sign up for that day or a later day once it gets filled up,” said HSTC Operations Manager Candice Veach.
Since 1955, the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast, located at 4100 SW Leighton Farm Ave. in Palm City, has been the leading advocate for animal welfare in the Martin County area. A 501(c)3 private, nonprofit organization, the Humane Society relies on donations, wills and bequests to support its programs and services.
