Throughout September and October, Santa Barbara County Animal Services and Santa Barbara Humane are offering $5 cat spay or neuter surgeries and free microchips through the “Beat the Heat” promotion.
County animal shelters host their annual “Beat the Heat” campaigns in an effort to promote responsible pet ownership and prevent accidental and unwanted litters of kittens. In 2020, 736 orphaned kittens came into County Animal Shelters. Spay and neuter surgeries help stop this cycle.
Appointments are limited to the first 100 cats and kittens. Pet owners are encouraged to take advantage of the $5 offer. As an added bonus, the promotion includes free microchips. Other treatments, such as vaccines and flea treatment are available at an additional cost.
To make an appointment, contact Santa Barbara County Animal Services at (805) 934-6968 or Santa Barbara Humane-Santa Maria Campus at (805) 964-4777.
