Houston, TX (PRWEB) January 30, 2015
The Houston Humane Society (HHS) announces that 700 male cat neuterings will be performed for the general public for free at their location, 14700 Almeda Road, on Wed. Feb. 18.
Fix Felix for Free is an annual event that HHS holds every year. To participate, people must have an appointment. Houstonians can make an appointment for up to five male cats by calling 713-433-6421 or by emailing fixfelix(at)houstonhumane(dot)org.
Each day, puppies and kittens are born to pets that have not been spayed or neutered, contributing to the massive pet overpopulation problem that plagues Houston. On Feb. 18, the Houston Humane Society and local cat owners are teaming up to help reduce those unwanted litters.
Spaying and neutering cats can have a number of positive benefits on the cat, including helping them to live longer, healthier and lower their risk for developing certain types of cancer. It can also reduce or eliminate unwanted behaviors such as marking territory, roaming and aggression.
On the day of the event, all cats must be dropped off in a hard plastic pet carrier. There is a limit of five cat neuters per household, and appointments are required. No walk-ins will be accepted. Domesticated and feral cats qualify, and a current rabies vaccination is required by law. Pet owners must show proof of current rabies certificate. Or, they may purchase a rabies vaccine for their cat at the event. Additional optional services will be offered at the time of surgery for a small fee.
