Kansas City, Missouri – July 31, 2013 SNKC will offer a “Back to School Special” of a $15 cat spay or neuter, a $25 dog neuter and $50 dog spay for your dog or cat all month long in August. Many families are concentrating on school supplies and clothes, but don’t forget about the furry “kids” in your family, who also need to be happy and healthy. All of the SNKC “Back to School” Special Prices are valid for August, 2013 only and some restrictions may apply.

There are many advantages to spaying or neutering your pets. Spayed or neutered animals no longer feel the need to roam to look for a mate. The result is that they stay home and have less chance of being involved in traumatic accidents such as being hit by a car. They also have a much lower incidence of contracting contagious diseases and get into fewer fights.

In males, neutering decreases the chances of developing prostatic disease and hernias, and eliminates the chances of developing testicular cancer. It also reduces problems with territorial and sexual aggression, inappropriate urination (spraying) and other undesirable male behaviors.

In Females, spaying decreases the incidence of breast cancer (the rate goes down to almost zero if the spaying is done before the first heat cycle!). It eliminates the chance of developing a serious and potentially fatal infection of the uterus experienced by many mature intact animals (pyometra). Spay surgery also eliminates the heat cycle and associated mood swings and undesirable behaviors, messy spotting (in dogs) and the attraction of all available males to your yard.

SNKC performs spay and neuter surgeries Tuesday through Friday by appointment. You drop off your pet in the morning and pick him back up in the afternoon of that same day. Please call 816-353-0940 or visit for more information about setting an appointment in August to get your pet fixed. You can also go to the SNKC website and find the surgery request form to send your information electronically.

Spay & Neuter Kansas City is a 501C3 nonprofit organization formed over 11 years ago to promote spaying and neutering as a primary means of decreasing pet overpopulation. Through education and provision of resources, SNKC’s goal is to keep animals out of our shelters and improve their quality of life.
