Our friends at the ASPCA® recently launched a sweepstakes called “Fixin’ to Win” in an effort to encourage New York City residents to spay or neuter their pet at an ASPCA Mobile Spay/Neuter Clinic.
Pet parents who have their dog or cat spayed or neutered from now until Dec 22 at an ASPCA mobile clinic location will receive a special ASPCA gift, as well as the opportunity to win several other prizes, including movie tickets, an autographed copy of Magic Johnson’s new book and a Dyson vacuum cleaner.
According to the ASPCA, 40,000 homeless pets enter New York City shelters every year. Spaying and neutering can have a direct impact on reducing this number. In 2009, the ASPCA spayed or neutered 31,000 cats and dogs in its mobile clinics.
“’Fixin’ to Win’ is the ASPCA’s way of giving back to New York City’s responsible pet owners and helping them enjoy the holiday season, while providing their pet with health and behavior benefits that last a lifetime,” said Kim Harris, Manager of Special Events and Outreach for the ASPCA Mobile Spay/Neuter Clinics, in an ASPCA statement. “Many pet owners don’t know that spaying and neutering their pet can prevent certain types of cancer and can reduce nuisance behaviors, such as spraying and roaming.”
In addition, each week the ASPCA will award a qualified adopter in each of the five boroughs with a free dog adoption at Animal Care & Control of New York City plus a $500 voucher for free services at any veterinary practice of the winner’s choice.
