There are many areas of the United States that believes that spaying and neutering furry loved ones will help keep the pet population at bay and prevent many animals from a life of homelessness and despair. In order to help with those goals, certain shelters, rescues and outside organizations are providing free and discounted spaying and neutering opportunities.
Several organizations in Chicago’s western suburbs are adhering to Spay Day Coupons for 2015 based on the encouragement of DuPage County Animal Care and Control Center (DCACC) based in Wheaton, Illinois. DCACC is asking all pet guardians to take advantage of a specially reduced rate at many participating veterinary hospitals in the area and get their furry best friend spayed or neutered.
Although a few of the organizations offered services for only specific month of the year (and some of those months have come and gone), there are still several vet hospitals adhering to the coupon. To obtain the coupon contact DCACC at 630.407.2800 or stop into the branch located at 120 North County Farm Road in Wheaton.
Then all you will need to do is call one of the participating hospitals still honoring the coupon and inform them you have the SPAY DAY 2015 COUPON, make your appointment and show up with your pet for the appointment. In order to ascertain if there will be further charges, ask while making your appointment. Make sure you have all required printed materials before you go and the following reduced fees that will be charged:
For Canines (under 70 pounds only apply to the discounted coupon rate):
· $64 for males
· $90 for females
· $51 for males
· $65 for females

Remember, in order to get the discounted rate for each pet, you will need a separate coupon for each one of them. Make sure to call early as there are a limited amount of surgeries that each veterinarian is available to do. Once you tell the vet that you have the coupon when you call to make the appointment, ask if any surgeries are still available and, if so, which dates are still available, if additional fees apply, if there are any vaccine requirements or pre-surgery requirements for their particular location.
Then, all you have to do, is take your pet in and help Illinois to reduce the number of homeless pets in this state.
