Kittens as young as 4 months and puppies as young as 5 months are old enough to get pregnant and have their first litter just two months later. “These precious babies shouldn’t be parents at 5 and 6 months old,” says Ellen Clark, executive director for Altered Tails, a nonprofit organization and the Valley’s largest spay/neuter clinic specializing in high quality, low-cost services.

That’s why Altered Tails, with funding provided by PetSmart Charities, is introducing the “Precious, Not Parents” campaign. Through the campaign, Altered Tails will provide $20 spay and neuter surgeries for puppies and kittens under 6 months of age during the month of June. This special $20 rate is even less than the organization’s normal low-cost priced.

Pet parents who wish to take advantage of this offer must mention the “Precious, Not Parents” campaign when they call to schedule their appointment. The campaign is based on availability.
