Mobile animal clinic offers desexing

21 February 2006

The SPCA's new mobile clinic has hit the road.
The clinic is designed to encourage the desexing of dogs and cats.

Miss World New Zealand 2006 Kay Anderson sent it on its official way at a ceremony at the SPCA's Auckland animal village in Mangere.

Housed in a specially-designed eight-metre caravan, the clinic will provide free desexing for dogs and cats owned by people who can't afford veterinarian fees.

Educational programmes on the importance of desexing and on animal welfare in general are also planned.

"If more cats and dogs are desexed, we will substantially reduce the need to euthanise unwanted puppies and kittens," says SPCA national chief executive Robyn McDonald. MORE>>
