The Animal Care League will now have a low cost spay and neuter clinic for pet rabbits along with their cat/dog program.
Tom Van Winkle, Executive Director of the Animal Care League states, “Rabbits are the 3rd most popular pet in the United States and there is a growing demand for affordable spay and neuter surgeries for them. We are proud to be the first shelter in the area offering this service to our community.”
Besides controlling the pet overpopulation crisis, there are other important reasons for getting your pet rabbit altered:
- Up to 80% of female rabbits that are not spayed can develop uterine cancer.
- Altered rabbits are easier to litter-box train.
- Altered rabbits tend to be less aggressive towards each other and can be bonded more easily.
The cost is $75 for neuters (boys) and for spays (girls) and includes a full examination before the surgery. Appointments must be made in advance by calling the Animal Care League at 708-848-8155.
