Ladies Night Out!

TOLEDO, Ohio, Jan. 21, 2014 – Warmer weather may still be months away, but Humane Ohio wants pet parents to “Beat the Heat” by spaying their female cats in advance of their heat cycles and preventing unwanted litters from being born this spring.  (Animal shelters commonly refer to spring time as “kitten season” because that is when they receive the largest numbers of unwanted litters that are difficult to adopt.)Kitten


 To help reduce the number of homeless cats born this spring, Humane Ohio is offering a special “Beat the Heat” promotion sponsored by PetSmart Charities®, the largest funder of animal welfare efforts in North America.  During the entire month of February, the non-profit organization will spay owned female cats for a special rate of $20.


 Spaying and neutering is one of the most effective ways to reduce the homeless pet population.  Spaying a female cat by four months before the first heat cycle is actually beneficial, rather than waiting until after one heat cycle has occurred.  The procedure is known to improve the health of the pet, including a reduced risk of certain reproductive cancers and infections.


 Jill Borkowski, Humane Ohio Marketing Director, says “Our “Beat the Heat” promotion is a win-win.  Every spring, local animal shelters and rescue groups are flooded with thousands of kittens.  We can help these organizations by preventing unwanted kittens from being born, and we can help people with female cats by offering a really special rate to spay their cat.” Continue reading »
