Lassen Humane Society announces cat spay subsidy program beginning in January

Now is the time to get those female cats spayed in order to prevent unwanted litters this spring.

This program is available to Lassen County residents who can’t otherwise afford the full cost of getting their female cats spayed.

The Lassen Humane Society will pay $50 toward a cat spay surgery at one of the area vets. (Payments will be made directly to the vets.)

This program begins Jan. 1 and is expected to run until100 cats have been spayed.

Cat owners should contact the veterinary office of their choice right away to get an appointment as soon as possible after Jan. 1.

Participating vets are: Lassen Veterinary Service, 257-6311; Thompson Peak Veterinary Clinic, 253-3190; Nelson Veterinary Service, 258-7264 and Chester Veterinary Clinic, 258-4242.

Note that only $50 will be paid toward the cost of a spay surgery.

All costs above the $50 subsidy are the responsibility of the cat owner.

This program is subject to change or cancellation without notice.
