Get your male cat neutered for $11 this Sunday

At Pet Helpers on James Island, the dogs are barking in celebration thanks to the completion of Pet Helpers new spay and neuter clinic, which plans on taking a bite out of the overpopulation of animals in the Lowcountry at a price we all can afford.

"Currently in Charleston County, we euthanized 75 percent of our animals because there are not enough homes for the animals out there," Kristin Kifer with Pet Helpers said.

We are going to offer low cost spay and neuters, so people of any range financially can bring in their animals in for affordable spay and neuters.

In seven years, one cat and her kittens can produce up to 420,000 more kittens which is why it's so important to spay and neuter your pet.

Although the new clinic doesn't open its doors to the public officially until December, husband and wife team veterinarians Dr. Janet McKim and Dr. Jack love are already working their magic in this brand new facility.

"It's awesome, totally state of the art. The ventilation systems cycles out every second so we can control disease throughout the whole shelter," Dr. McKim said. "It's piped in oxygen, an anesthetic machine, this is where the anesthetic waste goes, it's very state of the art cool stuff."

Pet Helpers would like to spay and neuter 5,000 animals a year which is an incredible number.

"I think it's something pet owners have a right to, is to be able to have a healthy pet and getting them spayed and neutered is absolutely the first step," Veternarian, Dr. McKim added.

Though November and December are difficult months for Pet Helpers because donations are low, they are offering a "Tom Cat Blitz." This Sunday, for only $11 you can get your male cat neutered. To register call 795-1110.
