VetLove is encouraging the desexing of pets in National Desexing Month in July, particularly cats, before the long breeding season in the warmer months.
At VetLove we are often the first contact point for unwanted cat and dog pregnancies, so we know the heartache involved with unwanted litters. This is why we have joined veterinarians around Australia to provide discounts to encourage animal owners to get their pets desexed
Last year more than 2000 kittens and nearly 700 puppies were born, surrendered or simply dumped at one of five AWLQ rehoming centres in South East Queensland alone. Many more don’t make it to the shelters, rescue groups or pounds, and are abandoned to live and breed on the streets, around shopping centres, and industrial complexes. This situation is typical across Australia, every year.
Desexing also provides many direct benefits to owners and companion animals. Cats and dogs are less likely to spray in and around the house or be injured while out looking for a mate. They are often more relaxed and affectionate and, generally, live longer and happier lives
National Desexing Month was initiated by Animal Welfare League Queensland. Now in its 14th year,
Last year veterinarians de-sexed approximately 10,000 cats and dogs through National De-sexing Month in July and VetLove is proud to participate in this one month campaign to help ‘make a difference’. So if your pet is de-sexed already, that’s great news, but don’t forget to tell your friends or share this great offer.
