PAWS Chicago is offering free cat spay/neuter surgeries and other discounted services for specific zip codes on Chicago’s south side. Please help spread the word!
Here is part of the email I received from PAWS’ Clinic Manager that details this offer:
“During the winter months, our Spay/Neuter Clinic sees a decline in the number of feral cats due to the colder weather and our regular TNR trappers and rescue organizations taking a much needed break. To offset this expected decline, we are going to run a special promotion through 12/31/13. This promotion features a FREE spay or neuter surgery for any domestic cat whose owners reside in these Chicago South and West Side zip codes:
We actually have some door hangers available if you are willing to spend some time distributing them! Typically, we are only allowed to give free surgery to members of the general public on public assistance residing in these limited zip codes – 60617, 60619, 60620, 60621, 60628, 60629, 60636, and 60639. So this is really a fantastic offer! Plus, in addition to the FREE spay or neuter, our regular priced vaccines, blood tests, and microchips will be reduced from $28 down to $15 each pet that qualifies! This free offer is not applicable directly to rescue groups that bring these animals is – but feel free to refer the owner to call our clinic to make the appointment, and bring the pet in themselves to receive the free service!
Even better – if you are able to get together 10 or more domestic cats from a single pickup point, we will likely be able to even provide transport for the animals to and from the clinic for their surgeries! If you are still pursuing TNR projects over the winter that include 10 or more feral cats, we may also be able to provide the feral cats transport to and from the clinic from your heated recovery space! Please keep Kinga and I posted on your projects regardless, so we can provide you with some FREE Feral Package vouchers for all cats originating from any of the December promo areas.
Please help me spread the word on this fantastic promotion! I appreciate all the effort that goes into all the hard work you do every day. You are truly an advocate for the animals. Hopefully soon, we can achieve a no-kill Chicago!”
