Program offers free spay, neuter services for all cat adoptions

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, the Kent County Health Department (KCHD) is offering free spay and neuter services for all cat adoptions, for one week only, valued at up to $70.

This program is a partnership between Vicky’s Pet Connection (VPC) and the Kent County Animal Shelter (KCAS). VPC and KCAS have been teaming up, providing services to help find homes for adoptable pets since 2000. VPC is a nonprofit animal rescue group, established in 1998, that has agreed to pay the spay/neuter fee on all adopted cats. Typically, male cat-neutering fee is $55 and a female cat spay fee is $70. However, for this coming week, it will be free. This ultimately lowers the adoption price to only $50, which covers a feline leukemia/FIV test, RCPC vaccination and a microchip ID implant.

“We are proud of our community partnership with Vicky’s Pet Connection, and this program is a great initiative to help our homeless cats find loving homes,” said Cathy Raevsky, administrative health officer for KCHD. “Most important, spaying and neutering your cat is part of responsible pet ownership, and it helps cats live longer and healthier lives.”

The free spay and neuter services for cat adoptions runs through Saturday, Feb. 19. The event will take place at the KCAS, 740 Fuller Ave. NE, Grand Rapids. Adoption hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 to 11 a.m. on Saturday.

To search adoptable cats at the KCAS, please visit Petfinder.com. For more information about VPC, please visit www.vickyspetconnection.org or the Critter Cottage at 7205 Thornapple River Dr., Ada, Mich.
