Snip'n'Chip Campaign Launched

Wellington SPCA in partnership with Wellington City Council and with the support of NZCAR and a number of Central Wellington veterinary practices is happy to announce the launch of snip’n’chip.

This special campaign is offering Wellington cat owners heavily discounted desexing and microchipping for your favourite feline.

The aim is to provide the best possible life for their cats by reducing the number of unwanted kittens and by helping all lost cats find their way home. Owners can also receive sound advice on how pet cats and native wildlife can better share their urban and suburban surroundings.

This campaign is only available until the 15th December, so get in fast to ensure you're giving your cat the life it deserves!

THIS PROMOTION IS AVAILABLE TO WELLINGTON CITY RESIDENTS ONLY. To see the list of suburbs, and check out the participtaing vet clinics visit the SPCA page at the link below.

About the Lonely Miaow Association

Founded in 1995, The Lonely Miaow Association is an incorporated, non-profit organisation dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of stray and abandoned cats and kittens in the greater Auckland area. The cats and kittens we rescue all receive a thorough health assessment and ongoing care which is undertaken by one of our supporting vets. Our cats and kittens are cared for in volunteer foster homes and when ready, adopted out to their very own loving, forever home.
