PICO RIVERA - The Los Angeles-based nonprofit, Found Animals Foundation, donated $150,000 to Clinico - a low-cost spay and neuter clinic - to help bolster cat sterilization across Los Angeles during kitten season by offering residents significantly reduced cat spay and neuter fees. Cat owners looking to sterilize their felines are eligible for the reduced rates that require no income qualification to receive the discounted services of $15 for male cat neutering, and $25 for female cat spaying. The promotion is in its final days and will run through September or until 3,000 cats and kittens have been sterilized. To date, 2,421 cats and kittens have been sterilized since the onset of the promotion, leaving only 579 appointments available. "The most effective way to bring down the number of kittens and cats entering our city and county shelters every year is to spay and neuter, " explained Aimee Gilbreath, executive director of Found Animals Foundation. The reduced cost spay and neuter promotion is available at all three Clinico locations in Pico Rivera, San Pedro and Van Nuys. For more information, call (562) 942-2640.
