The SPCA has launched a Snip ’n’ Chip campaign, offering discounted desexing and microchipping to Community Services Cardholders in Tauranga.

The Snip ‘n’ Chip campaign allows Tauranga residents with a Community Services Card to desex and microchip their female cat for $30, or their male cat for $25.

Every month, thousands of animals are brought into SPCA centres nationwide.

“Desexing is one of the best things we can do for animal welfare in New Zealand,” says SPCA CEO Andrea Midgen.

“Not only will it help your pets have a happier and healthier life, but desexing ensures they don’t unknowingly or unexpectedly reproduce a litter of animals who are at risk of being abused and neglected.”

SPCA encourages all Community Services Cardholders in Tauranga with undesexed or unmicrochipped cats or kittens to take up this fantastic offer.

Appointments can be made by calling SPCA’s Tauranga Centre on 07 578 0245. This limited time offer is only available until bookings run out.

“We are so grateful to our participating vets for being involved in this campaign. They have played a huge part to improve animal welfare in Tauranga,” says Andrea.

“The aim for our campaigns is to also reach out to those who may not have considered having their pet desexed, or may not be able to afford it, and provide pet owners who do not currently have a local vet to get to know one.”
