Primp Your Pit Spay/Neuter Special
DELAWARE SPCA Urges Pit Bull Parents to Prevent
Unwanted Litters Through its
“Primp Your Pit (bull)” Promotion
Free Nail Trim offered with Low Cost Spay/Neuter Surgery
Newark and Georgetown, Delaware – With 8 million homeless pets entering U.S. shelters every year, the Delaware SPCA is helping to solve the problem with its “Primp Your Pit (bull)” spay/neuter promotion sponsored by PetSmart Charities®. During the month of August, Delaware SPCA will spay/neuter pit bulls for a special rate of $20, including a free nail trim.
Today, 35 percent of dogs and cats in U.S. households are not spayed or neutered yet the procedure is one of the most effective ways to reduce the homeless pet population. Pit bulls, in particular, end up in shelters in large numbers because of myths and negative media that impact public perceptions associated with the breed.
“The ‘Primp Your Pit (bull)’ promotion helps you and your dog,” says Anne Cavanaugh, Executive Director of the Delaware SPCA. “Spaying/neutering a pet is the most effective thing a pet parent can do to prevent unwanted litters and ensure their pet lives a long, happy life.”
The American Veterinary Medical Association endorses spaying and neutering puppies as young as eight to 10 weeks old, and research shows that the procedure can improve the behavior and health of the pet, including reducing the risk of certain reproductive cancers and infections.
In an effort to prevent unwanted litters of pit bulls, this special rate during the “Primp Your Pit (bull)” event applies to all residents of Delaware. Pit bull parents who wish to take advantage of this offer must mention the “Primp Your Pit” promotion when they schedule their appointment. The promotion is based on availability.
