Animal lovers and workers alike have joined forces to make the most of a grant to deliver cheap desexing for eligible pet owners in Griffith.
Funding from the Animal Welfare League NSW and Griffith City Council enable this particular approach to be taken in Griffith for the first time, as part in the July National Desexing Campaign.
Participating local vets have also agreed to join in, significantly subsidising the cost of the procedures.
Friends of Griffith Pound committee member Virginia Tropeano was "incredibly thankful" the initiative of the Griffith Pound and Rehoming Centre Working Group has been funded.
The aim is to assist local residents who would like to desex their pets but need some help with the cost.Virginia Tropeano
"The aim is to assist local residents who would like to desex their pets but need some help with the cost," Mrs Tropeano said.
"The campaign will only run throughout July or until our funding has been spent, so it's first in best dressed!"
Vouchers are for female cats and dogs, so as to get "the most bang for our buck".
Cat vouchers will be $55, with dog voucher prices varying on weight, but start at $95.
To be eligible, you must reside in the Griffith City Council area and present a current pension or healthcare card, with two allowed per person.
Head down to the stand outside Bunnings near the BBQ from 9.30am on Sunday June 30.
They will also be available at the Off Leash area opposite Griffith Public School on Saturday July 13 from 11am to 2pm. Weighing your dog before coming in is a must.
Vet bookings must be made in July. For more information, don't hesitate to ask on the day.
