Thinking about getting a new pet?
If you’ve been thinking of adding a new member to the family, now could be the perfect time. Auckland SPCA are offering 50 dogs and puppies for adoption at half the normal price. Puppies under six months old are $142.50, dogs up to seven years old are $132.50 and dogs over seven are $80 with half price dog adoptions until Sunday 31st July.
Auckland SPCA veterinary manager Dr Shalsee Vigeant said the SPCA had become extremely full. She believed dog owners not getting their pets desexed was part of the reason the SPCA was so busy.
“We haven’t had half-price adoption fees for several years. We have more than 100 dogs at the moment so we had to do something. “I think there’s a bit of a culture around not getting dogs desexed in New Zealand. It shouldn’t be that way. Desexing doesn’t do anything detrimental to the dogs. The SPCA offers cheaper desexing deals for community service card holders and a lot of vets offer low-cost options.”
