Nelson BC SPCA and its partners, the Osprey Community Foundation and the Columbia Basin Trust through the Regional District of Central Kootenay, are committed to improving animal welfare by reducing pet overpopulation.
Participating local vets provide discounted services in order to ensure the long-term effectiveness and viability of the program. Successful applicants will be charged $60 towards the cost of the procedure for cats, $150 for male dogs, $250 for female dogs and will need to arrange transportation for their pet(s) to and from veterinary clinics.
A microchip will be implanted at the time of surgery, and a one-year subscription with the BC Pet Registry will be registered with the option to renew in one year at an annual rate of $12 or a life-time rate of $45. An optional one-time medical vaccination and topical antiparasitic treatment will be administered at the time of surgery.
The feline vaccine protects against feline viral rhinotracheitis, feline calicivirus, and feline panleukopaenia virus. The Feline antiparasitic protects against fleas, heartworms, roundworms, hookworms, and ear mites.
The canine vaccine protects against canine distemper virus, canine adenovirus type 1, canine adenovirus type 2, canine parainfluenza virus, canine parvovirus, and canine parvovirus type 2c. The canine antiparasitic treats and prevents fleas, ticks, heart worms, ear mites, and sarcoptic mange.
