Kent Animal Shelter is advising cat owners to "Beat the Heat" by spaying cats before their heat cycles occur, thus preventing unwanted litters during the spring's "kitten season." The campaign is sponsored by PetSmart Charities and offers Long Island residents a special $20 price for spay and neuter surgeries during the entire month of February for all female cats and kittens older than 8 to 10 weeks.
"Female cats can have as many as three litters a year, and kittens can breed as young as four months old," Pamela Green, executive director of the Kent Animal Shelter, said. "Most people don't want to see their cat get pregnant over and over again, so hopefully our "Beat the Heat" campaign will serve as a gentle reminder to cat owners to sterilize their cats before they go into heat this year."
According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, spaying and neutering is one of the most effective ways to lower the animal homeless pet population. To take advantage of this offer, mention the "Beat the Heat" campaign when you schedule the appointment.
Kent Animal Shelter is located at 2259 River Road in Calverton. For more information, call 631-727-5731 or visit www.kentanimalshelter.com.
