COVID-19 can’t stop the RSPCA from running its annual desexing campaign, “Operation: Wanted”.
About 140 veterinary practices across Queensland have signed up for this year’s three-month campaign, which kicks off on June 1.
Pet owners are already starting to register online.
“We’ve had a terrific reaction from Queensland residents and we’d like to thank participating vets and the many local councils for their support,” RSPCA Qld spokesperson Michael Beatty said.
“It’s the vets and the shire councils who help drive the campaign and make it a success.”
During the campaign, participating vets will reduce their desexing fees by 20 per cent.
Last year an estimated 10,000 extra animals were desexed as a direct result of the campaign.
The advantages to having your pet desexed:
- No risk of unwanted litters
- Reduces desire to roam
- Reduces risk of some cancers
- Reduces other unwanted behaviours such as urine spraying (cats)
- Cheaper Council registration fees
- Allows pets to be happier and more relaxed
