Snip Snip!

PAWS is offering to snip your kittens or cats for their health and the health of the community. There are 1,000 openings, and I received an email from Michael Gregory, PAWS Director, that they are still taking applications. They also chip and give a rabies vaccination free. Please. As a cat owner this is a win-win for all.

Rutherford County Pet Adoption and Welfare Services Offers Free Sterilizations for Cats and Kittens Living in Smyrna and LaVergne Area 
Murfreesboro, Tennessee, June 26, 2013 — Rutherford County Pet Adoption and Welfare Services, located at 285 John R. Rice Blvd., Murfreesboro, TN 37129, is offering 1,000 free sterilizations for any cat or kitten living in the Smyrna and LaVergne area, thanks to a grant from PetSmart Charities® Residents living in these areas can call (615-898-7740 ext. 113) to see if they qualify for one of the free sterilizations through the CATSNIP program. Surgery appointments will only be accepted while grant funding is available. 
“We are grateful to PetSmart Charities® for allowing a change in our PITSNIP grant to assist with cat and kitten surgeries in the Smyrna and LaVergne zones” says Michael Gregory, Director, Rutherford County PAWS. “We really want to see cat and kitten owners in these areas take advantage of these free spay/neuter surgeries to help reduce the pet population. A microchip and rabies vaccination is also being included with the surgery to help get pets reunited with their owner if they are ever lost” Gregory adds. “We feel that targeting the cat and kitten populations in these areas will make a measurable difference in our shelter intakes. We are so happy that our friends at PetSmart Charities® agree and are providing funding for this program.”
