Cat spay and neuter special Print E-mail

United Coalition for Animals (UCAN) is pleased to announce the following special to help stop the euthanasia of cats in the Greater Cincinnati area: cat spay/neuter surgery will be only 20 dollars and each cat will receive a free rabies vaccine, FVRCP vaccine, microchip and treatment for fleas, ticks, ear mites or tapeworms if seen. This special program was financially funded by a grant from The Joanie Bernard Foundation and will continue through December 31, 2014.

UCAN performs cat surgery Monday through Thursday every week. Please call 513-721-PETS (7387) to make an appointment.

Over 70 thousand puppies and kittens are born each day in the U.S., over half of which are “oops” (unintended) litters. As a result, every year, millions of cats and dogs are abandoned and end up in overcrowded shelters where over four million of them are euthanized each year.

“Spay/neuter is the proven, simple solution to stop this cycle, sterilizing cats and dogs means fewer unwanted animals being born and surrendered to shelters and therefore fewer animals being euthanized,” said Melanie Corwin, Executive Director of UCAN. She continued, “The main reasons people do not sterilize their pets are cost and access. UCAN addresses both of those issues by having low-cost fees and free transports to the clinic from several locations in Southwest Ohio, Northern Kentucky, and Southeast Indiana.”

UCAN is an Ohio nonprofit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization formed in 2001 to end the unnecessary deaths of healthy and treatable cats and dogs in the Greater Cincinnati area. To achieve its mission, UCAN provides low-cost professional spay/neuter services and free transports from several locations in Southwest Ohio, Northern Kentucky and Southeast Indiana. UCAN opened its high volume spay/neuter clinic in April 2007, and has completed over 63 thousand surgeries to date, preventing hundreds of thousands of unwanted animals from ever being born.
