Good news for pet owners in the Sharon area: The Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals – Sharon is inaugurating a sterilization clinic in Moshav Bnei Zion.
Surgical spaying and neutering procedures for cats and dogs are carried out in the new clinic at subsidized rates, with the aim of alleviating the financial burden on those raising cats and dogs, allowing them to have the procedures carried out in order to reduce the uncontrolled proliferation and suffering of unwanted puppies and kittens.
Prices of operations in the clinic:
Sterilization of cats: NIS 100
Sterilization of dogs: NIS 150
Sterilization of smaller dogs: NIS 200
Sterilization of larger dogs: NIS 250
In addition, for a further NIS 100, one can have dogs’ and cats’ teeth cleaned during the operation, thus improving their dental health, preventing gum disease and unpleasant mouth odors.<
The veterinarians performing these important procedures are highly qualified with years of experience in the field, and the sums charged are designated to cover the costs of the clinic’s upkeep alone.
The Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals – Sharon, invites all pet owners to come to the new facility, to have their animals sterilized and to enjoy the subsidized prices. These procedures, which are accepted all over the Western world, are considered simple and straightforward, with speedy recuperation rates. In addition to the fact that pets will not have to deal with unwanted litters, neutering and spaying contribute to the animals’ health, improve the quality of their lives, increase their lifespan, assist in preventing aggressive behavior and prevent such illnesses as ovarian and uterine cancer, mammary gland cancer, infections of the uterus, prostate malfunction and testicle cancer.
Appointments can be made at the clinic phone number: 1599-50-2005
The opening of the new clinic is a direct result of The Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals – Tel Aviv’s efforts to encourage the public to sterilize their pets. Following the request of The Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals – Sharon, the committee of The Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals – Tel Aviv decided to undertake the management of The Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals – Sharon, with the first step in this endeavor being the opening of the clinic.
Another step is being carried out at the parliamentary level, as a result of an initiative taken by The Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals – Tel Aviv: At this time the Bill for the Regularization of the Dog Licensing Fee, which will determine in the regulations that the fee imposed for renewal of dog licenses for non-sterilized dogs will be higher by NIS 700 than the fee imposed for dogs who have undergone sterilization procedures, has passed the primary reading in the Knesset.
