The “Love My Cat” program has been a success for six years, so North Platte and Sutherland veterinary clinics will offer discounts in February to make spaying and neutering affordable.

Since the Love My Cat program began in fall 2011, 3,798 cats been spayed and neutered in Lincoln County through the program, in addition to cats Paws-itive Partners helps year round, Paws-itive Partners Secretary Amanda Marquette said.

“When Paws-itive Partners and veterinary clinics first sponsored Love My Cat month, no one knew there would be another after another,” Marquette said.

The all-out effort to spay and neuter is good for cats, pet owners and communities, she said.

During February, veterinary clinics and Paws-itive Partners make spaying and neutering affordable. Lower income cat owners who might not ordinarily spay and neuter have the opportunity to sterilize cats for $25.

 “Our goal in February is to help those who might not otherwise sterilize their cats and to help control overpopulation,” Marquette said.

In addition to lower income owners, people are encouraged to trap stray and feral cats to spay and neuter.

“We’ve had a good number of strays and ferals helped by Love My Cat,” said Jo Mayber of Paws-itive Partners. “There were 87 stray or feral cats spayed or neutered during the October. Trap-neuter-return is a proven method of reducing homelessness,”

Brady residents have an additional incentive that can be used in conjunction with Love My Cat. With proof of sterilization, the village will reimburse a pet owner $25 for spaying or neutering up to four animals per year.

Contact the village clerk for more info or to sign up for the incentive program.

In order to participate in Love My Cat month, call Marquette at 308-534-3186 or Mayber at 308-532-8814. You will get a Pet ID number. After that, the cat’s appointment can be scheduled at any veterinary clinic in North Platte or Sutherland. 

Love My Cat is only for the month of February and appointments will fill up fast, so pet owners are encouraged to call soon.
