Thompson Humane Society stresses importance of spaying and neutering pets

If you’re a pet owner, you have the responsibility to feed and house your pet and provide medical care such as regular vet visits and vaccines.

Oswald Sawh, Board Chair of the Thompson Humane Society, adds why it’s also important to have your pet spayed or neutered.

“Overall, yes, we encourage people to make sure they spay or neuter their animal so we don’t have a issue where we have unwanted dogs or cats out there because then the challenge comes when people are no longer able to house that animal.”

Sawh is responding to a recent situation where a cat and her litter of 5 kittens were found abandoned outside the city in freezing weather.  Only the mother cat survived.

A spay and neuter clinic was held in January and another clinic will be held this weekend.

Sawh says more clinics will take place in the coming months.

For more on this incident, listen to Thompson Today this afternoon at 12:40 and 5:10.
