Prevent a Litter Month Goes Local


CENTRAL POINT, Ore. — February is National Prevent a Litter Month.

In an effort to reduce the vast amount of unwanted litters in the spring, the Spay and Neuter Your Pet Foundation in Jackson County is partnering with Grange Co-Op and local veterinary clinics, offering discounted prices  to customers looking to spay or neuter their pet.

“If you’re not in an active breeding program where you’re going to be selling animals you’re literally going to be saving a lot of lives…  A lot of puppies and kitties who would otherwise would have to be put away,” said Grange Co-Op store manager, Norm Rush.

If interested, you can pay and pick up the discount certificates at any Grange Co-Op location from now through the end of February.

For cats, the discounted price is $25.00 and for dogs up to 60 pounds it’s $75, and an additional $10 for dogs over that weight limit.

    SNYPS is a wonderful plan.
    The only thing that would be better is put a STOP to pet mills & All backyard/irresponsible breeding.
    Since the counties prefer breeding it is going to take some hard core promoting to put a stop to it but I would love to see it done.
    I am SO tired of having to clean up mutilated &/or dead animals that have been dumped by ignoramuses who are giving these animals ‘a 2nd chance’. A 2nd chance for what? More abuse?
    Please! Spay & neuter your animals! If you don’t consider genetics you may very well be promoting the very dogs Medford is wanting to get rid of. Please! Be responsible animal owners!
