Halifax Humane Society (HHS), with the help of a $40,000 grant from PetSmart Charities, is introducing the Beat the Heat Spay Campaign. Through Beat the Heat, HHS will provide $25 spay surgeries for female dogs and cats at its Redinger Spay/Neuter Clinic in Daytona Beach. This special $25 rate is even lower than the organization’s regular low-cost price and is available to all pet owners.
“It is critical to alter female dogs and cats to help prevent pet overpopulation in our community. Also, spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast tumors, which can be malignant or cancerous in about 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats. Spaying a female pet before her first heat offers the best protection from these diseases,” says Miguel Abi-hassan, CEO of Halifax Humane Society.
Thanks to the new grant, HHS will be able to provide up to 400 spay surgeries for $25 each, April 2019 through May 2019. The subsidized spay surgeries are based on availability. To schedule an appointment call (386) 310-4935 and mention the Beat the Heat campaign. Redinger Clinic has limited appointment space, thus a waiting list may be required.
“PetSmart Charities is thrilled to continue working with the Halifax Humane Society, Inc. to help pets and pet parents in need in Volusia County,” said Sima Thakkar, regional relationship manager at PetSmart Charities. “By supporting spay/neuter efforts provided by passionate animal welfare organizations like HHS, we hope to reduce pet homelessness while making veterinary care more accessible and affordable.”
