Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV) has partnered with 20 local veterinary offices to provide reduced spay and neuter services throughout the month of February. Sterilized pets have a higher chance of living a healthier and longer life, while reducing the overpopulation of homeless animals in the community. Clients can receive up to 40 percent off regular price by appointment only.
“Increasing spay and neuter efforts at this time of year heads off hundreds of homeless litters in the spring and summer months,” says Dr. Cristie Kamiya, HSSV Chief of Shelter Medicine. There are a number of added benefits to spay or neuter your pets. It can completely eliminate the risk of testicular cancer in male animals and reduce the risk of ovarian and other cancers in females. There is less desire for animals to roam, minimizing the interest to mate, spray or mark territory while also decreasing the chances of an accident with a vehicle and fights with neighboring animals.

Humane Society Silicon Valley is a privately funded, non-profit organization with an Animal Community Center in Milpitas, and three Neighborhood Adoptions Centers in West San Jose Petco, Sunnyvale Petco and Mountain View PetSmart.
