WESTLAND, Mich. - The Michigan Humane Society (MHS) is hosting a low-cost spay and neuter clinic for 100 cats and kittens at the Berman Center for Animal Care Veterinary Center in Westland on Sunday, July 28.

The 100 appointments must be pre-scheduled and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. To scheduled san appointment call (734) 721-4195.

The cost is just $42 per cat or kitten.

In addition to spaying or neutering, the cost will also include pain medication, rabies vaccination (for cats 4 months and older) and FVRCP vaccination, which covers feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus and panleukopenia (feline distemper).

This low-cost package represents a savings of more than $100. To be eligible for surgery cats must be healthy and at least 8 weeks of age.

"Spaying and neutering is the best way to control the problem of pet overpopulation and decrease the number of homeless animals in our community," said Dr. Kelly Meyers, D.V.M., and MHS vice president of veterinary operations. "With this special Sunday event, we are hoping to accommodate those who couldn't otherwise make it to our veterinary centers during regular business hours."
