Spay Days '99

   King County Animal Control is sponsoring Spay Days '99 from Feb. 22 through 26 as part of the national Spay Day program.

   Over 1,300 surgery coupons for local veterinary hospitals to provide no-cost cat spay/neuter surgeries will be distributed. Ninety doctors at 46 local veterinary hospitals throughout King County will be participating this year. Coupon availability and surgery times are limited, so cat owners need to contact participating veterinarians as soon as possible.

   Area locations include: Bothell Pet Hospital, Bothell, (425) 486-3251; Canyon Park Veterinary Hospital, Bothell (425) 481-1444; Hollywood Hill Animal Hospital, Woodinville, (425) 486-8387; Inglemoor Animal Hospital, Kenmore, (425) 820-7387; Kenmore Animal Hospital, (425) 485-6575; Sno-Wood Veterinary Hospital, Woodinville, (425) 483-5834.

   Uncomplicated surgeries on healthy cats will be performed. Veterinary clinic policy will determine necessary pre-surgery vaccination(s) and additional costs for any other services not included.

   Cat owners who reside within the service areas of King County Animal Control will be eligible. Cat owners will be required to purchase a $15 King County cat license ($12 for senior citizens 65 and older) by the time of surgery. Veterinary clinic policies will determine additional restrictions and eligibility.
