Spay/neuter program available for a discount

The MSPCA at Nevins Farm in Methuen is announcing a Spay-Neuter Assistance Program for animals in Haverhill, funded by a grant from the Massachusetts Animal Coalition and Petco.

Haverhill residents can apply for a discounted rate for the surgery to spay or neuter their cat or dog, which will be performed by staff veterinarians at the MSPCA. You do not have to qualify for financial aid to participate in the program.

Cats owned by Haverhill residents are eligible for a spay or neuter package for $10, while dogs are eligible for a spay or neuter package for $75. Pit bulls and pit bull-type dogs are eligible at a discounted rate of $50 through the organization’s Pit Pals Program.

Normally, the cost of a canine spay-neuter package through the MSPCA at Nevins Farm is $150, which includes the surgery, rabies vaccination, a distemper vaccination and a microchip (a form of permanent identification). The coalition grant subsidizes half of the cost, making the package available to Haverhill residents for only $75.
