The Hinsdale Humane Society is offering vouchers good for free spay/neuter services at participating area veterinary offices through February.
The promotion is in conjunction with the Humane Society of the United States’ World Spay Day, an annual campaign that shines a spotlight on the importance of spay/neuter. In support of World Spay Day, the society is reaching out to pet owners who would not otherwise be able to have their pets spayed/neutered due to financial limitations.
Every year, between six million and eight million dogs and cats enter U.S. shelters, and between three million and four million of these animals are euthanized because there are not enough homes for them.
“Spaying and neutering saves lives by reducing the pet overpopulation,” said Jenny Vlazny, Hinsdale Humane Society operations manger. “It also comes with health benefits, helps to curb unruly pet behavior and ultimately saves on medical expenses.”
Vouchers for the free service will be available to qualifying pet owners, while supplies last. Additionally, World Spay Day Hearts will be available for a donation to the society’s Spay/Neuter Fund. Spay Day Heart purchases will allow the society to offer additional spay/neuter vouchers to the community. The hearts will be on display in the lobby.
The Hinsdale Humane Society, 22 N. Elm St., Hinsdale, is open from 2-8 p.m. Tuesdays, noon to 6 p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekends.
