Get your cats and dogs vaccinated this month and have them spayed or neutererd

NEW SMYRNA BEACH -- Sunday, Oct. 16, Is National Feral Cat Day, but Volusia County is extending it to the whole month of October. Halifax Humane Society is offering FREE cat spays and neuters along with shots every friday in October. Yes, FREE! Now there is no excuse for not spaying or neutering you cat.

Concerned Citizens For Animal Welfare has teamed up with All Creatures Vet Clinic's Vet Tom Freiberg in an effort to neuter 100 cats. Freiberg is closing his office on Friday, Oct. 28, in order to accommodate the need for low cost neuters. Surgery cost is $20. We have some other vets on board to also offer low cost spays and neuters. Low cost shots are also available.

I volunteer at these neuter clinics, along with Pat Mahelic and Julie Osburn of CCFAW and Doc Freiburg's wife and daughter, both vet techs. Along with others, there are many volunteer hours spent at CCFAW's Low Cost Shot Clinics for Dogs and Cats.

Low cost Flea and heartworm product are available for sale at the shot clinics too. Unlike some other shot clinics, we are cheaper and what little profit that is made goes directly to pay for spaying and neutering cats and dogs in our county for those who can not afford it themselves.

There are well over 80,000 feral cats in Volusia County alone. Every day, more and more people are dumping the cats they promised to care for for life outside. It's a life these sort of cats are not prepared for and most of them are not de-sexed. This is what leads to such a huge feral cat population. Killing is not the answer. Spaying or Neutering your cat is.
