Mountain View Human Roanoke/Christiansburg.

ROANOKE, Va. -

Mountain View Humane wants you to ring in the New Year by making a resolution to neuter your male dog or cat during their “Happy Neuter Year” campaign.

Sponsored by PetSmart Charities, the largest funder of animal welfare efforts in North America, the “Happy Neuter Year,” campaign will provide $20 neuter surgeries for male dogs and cats during the month of January.

Spaying and neutering is one of the most effective ways to reduce the homeless pet population and is safe for puppies and kittens as young as eight to 10 weeks old, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association. “Neutering male pets is a simple surgery that reduces unwanted behaviors, like roaming, fighting, and urine marking territories,” says Corrie Prater, Director of Marketing and Development. “It also guarantees your dog or cat never fathers a litter of puppies or kittens.”

This special $20 rate is even less than Mountain View Humane’s normal low-cost price of $68 for a male dog and $45 for a male cat.

This offer is available to everyone regardless of income. This campaign is based on availability.

Mountain View Humane will provide a limited number of “Happy Neuter Year” sterilizations for $20 in January.

Appointments can be scheduled at both the Roanoke and Christiansburg clinics.
