ChattaNeuter Cares Offers Limited Time Spay Or Neuter Discounts For Seniors’ Pets

Wednesday, January 16, 2019

ChattaNeuter staff applied for and received a grant from Bissell Pet Foundation that will help Hamilton County seniors get their pets fixed at a discounted rate. 

"At ChattaNeuter we receive calls daily from seniors requesting financial assistance to spay or neuter their pets. Many local residents that have retired and are on fixed incomes greatly benefit from having pets in their lives," officials said.  "Our low prices can fit most budgets, but for many people finding the additional funds for surgery can be difficult.  We understand your pets are like family members and we want to do everything possible to help keep you together and healthy so we are offering this special, discounted service thanks to the Bissell Pet Foundation."

Call 423-531-7729 Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. to find out about the co-pay to fix your pet. 

"Make your appointment now.  This offer is only good as long as grant funding lasts," officials said.
