“It’s always Hip to Snip” Spay/Neuter

hipFebruary is National Spay and Neuter month.  On January 26, the “Board of County Commissioners.” will proclaim February Spay and Neuter Month in Citrus County.  Snippet Citrus and Friends of Citrus County Animal Services (FOCCAS) have partnered to sponsor a special dog promotion during the month of February.  This cooperative partnership was born based on information from Animal Services and the need to find an affordable, accessible way to spay/neuter pets for citizens who are unable to afford the procedure.  With local veterinarians charging from $100 to over $300 to spay or neuter a pet, many citizens have put off having their pets spayed or neutered, adding to the increased pet population in the county.  Let’s stop pet homelessness before it starts.

Starting Monday, February 1 thru Monday, February 29 as long as funds are available, the “It’s Hip to Snip” promotion will allow Citrus County citizens who qualify for financial assistance to spay or neuter their cats and dogs at the normal price of $10 for cats, and the special price of $20 for any size dog. You will need to call 352-436-4268 to see if you qualify. Please do not call for this promotion before Monday, February 1 at 8 am.  If you qualify, you will need to call and schedule an appointment during February.  The surgery doesn’t need to be completed before the end of February, but you must call and schedule an appointment before the end of the month.

Remember:  It’s Hip to Snip!

We need your donations to continue our mission.
