County Animal Services - Coupons

Breeding season is underway and County Animal Services is offering spay/neuter discount coupons throughout the month of January to reduce the number of unwanted and homeless animals that typically arrive in the spring.

Although the Animal Services has offered the service in the past, this time the discount is $50 higher. Coupons for female dogs, cats and rabbits will now take $100 off the regular price of a spay/neuter procedure while coupons for male dogs, cats and rabbits will see a discount of $75.

The Animal Services’ website lists 76 veterinarians throughout the county who will perform the surgery at a reduced cost.

Spaying and neutering offers health and welfare benefits to pets and helps reduce the strain on animal care facilities that take in homeless animals. The coupons are available for dogs, cats and rabbits but Animal Services is particularly concerned about cats this time of year.

“We are inundated with hundreds of unwanted kittens every year during kitten season,” said County Animal Services Director Dawn Danielson. “By offering the discount coupons during breeding season, we’re hoping to see a decrease in the numbers of unwanted pets we start getting in April and peaking in May.”

Pet owners have 60 days to use the coupons and 30 days to return them to Animal Services to get reimbursed.
