A new year calls for a new resolution!
Kent Animal Shelter
in Calverton is offering $20 male dog or cat neutering as part of their "Happy Neuter Year" campaign throughout January. Neutering your male dog or cat will prevent unwanted litters and reduce homeless pet populations.
"Neutering male pets is a simple surgery that reduces unwanted behaviors, like roaming, fighting, and urine marking territories," said Pamela Green, Executive Director of Kent Animal Shelter. "It also guarantees your dog or cat never fathers a litter of puppies or kittens."
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 ten weeks old. "Happy Neuter Year" is sponsored by PetSmart Charities. The $20 rate is lower than the North Fork-based animal shelter's normal low-cost price and is available to all Long Island residents.

Kent Animal Shelter is a no-kill haven for homeless animals and provides adoption services and humane education.
Kent Animal Shelter is located at 2259 South River Road in Calverton. For more information, call 631-727-5731 or visit www.kentanimalshelter.com.
