KNOXVILLE (WATE) — Young-Williams Animal Center is giving deals for pet owners during the month of August for its “Back to School” campaign.
Owners must call 215 – 6677 to schedule an appointment, then bring their pet to the center at 6400 Kingston Pike to receive spay/neuter surgery for $20.
Pets must be six-months-old or younger. The surgery is safe for pets as young as 8-10-weeks-old.
Spaying and neutering can help reduce the homeless pet population.
“The first step in reducing pet homelessness is spaying and neutering,” says Dr. Lisa Chassy, director of veterinary services. “These discounted surgeries serve as a great opportunity to remind the community how important it is to have your pet fixed. Thanks to wonderful partners like PetSmart Charities we are able to make these procedures affordable for all pet owners.”
Owners must mention the “Back to School” campaign when scheduling their appointment.
“Spaying and neutering pets is a simple solution that reduces unwanted behaviors, like roaming, aggression and difficulties with housetraining,” says Chassy. “It also guarantees your dog or cat never fathers or mothers a litter of puppies or kittens.”
