Does your cat or dog need to be sterilised?
During September, the Shire of Dardanup is teaming up with local vets to offer HUGE discounts on procedures for male and female cats and dogs.
30 Cats & Dogs in 30 Days is a campaign to reduce the number of unwanted kittens and puppies in our community.
We’re hoping at least 30 pets during September and their owners will benefit from the discounts. But get in quick because the offer will run on a first come, first served basis and vouchers are limited. One voucher per household only.
Here’s the discount deal:
STERILISATION – FEMALE CAT $75/cat
STERILISATION – MALE CAT $50/cat
STERILISATION – MALE DOG $100/dog
STERILISATION – FEMALE DOG $150/dog
Access this valuable discount in 3 easy steps:
- Collect a brochure from our Eaton Administration Office or DOWNLOAD HERE and complete
- Return completed form AND proof of address to us for on-the-spot assessment of eligibility
- If approved, you will be given a voucher for presentation to a local vet. The vet will reduce your bill to the extent of the subsidy and invoice the Shire directly to pay the difference – easy!
All three vets located within the Shire of Dardanup have indicated their support for the campaign and willingness to participate.
Once your cat or dog is sterilised, please register your pet with the Shire at your earliest convenience.
Benefits of De-Sexing Dogs
A de-sexed dog is less likely to have risk of:
- Unwanted pregnancies
- Developing testicular, ovarian and uterine cancers
- Aggressive territorial behavior including roaming and marking
- Coming into season and bleeding (females)
- Anti-social behaviour towards people or other animals
Benefits of De-Sexing Cats
A de-sexed cat is less likely to:
- Wander or run away, especially males.
- Contract Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) through territorial fighting with other cats that may have the virus.
- Develop certain types of tumours such as uterine, ovarian and mammary cancer in females and possible testicular cancer in males
- Get in fights over territory or mating partners. This reduces injuries such as abscesses, car trauma and infected wounds which are often serious and sometimes fatal.
- Express anti-social behaviour towards people or other animals.
- Spray or mark its territory, which is often around the house.
