PETA to host “spay-a-thon” in Norfolk on Monday
The Norfolk-based animal welfare organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals will hold a low-cost, 24-hour-long spay and neuter event beginning Monday at 6 p.m.
The “spay-a-thon” celebrates World Spay Day as well as a PETA milestone: The group recently performed its 100,000th sterilization surgery since its clinics began in 2001.
The event will last through 6 p.m. Tuesday at PETA’s headquarters, 501 Front Street.
Surgeries cost $25. Payment must be made in cash and appointments are required. Call 757-622-7382, extension 3.
Pet owners who make overnight appointments between 10 p.m. and 10 a.m. will be offered free rabies vaccinations.
“PETA’s special offer will allow people to save money and lives by ensuring that their cats and dogs will never again contribute to the population of unwanted puppies and kittens on the streets and in shelters,” PETA Senior Vice President Daphna Nachminovitch said in a news release.
