TEN BUCKS A TOM

Location: Jackson County
Description: Local animal welfare organization, Spay/Neuter Your Pet (SNYP), is teaming up with many local veterinary offices throughout the valley this summer to offer an incredible price to neuter male cats. The cost is just $10 per neuter. Only 500 certificates are available for sale on a first-come, first-served basis at Pet Country, the Medford, Ashland and White City Grange Co-Ops, and the Stewart and Crater Lake Mini Pet Marts. The certificates can be redeemed at any of the many participating veterinary offices listed on the back of the certificate. All male cats must be tame to qualify for the program.
SNYP organized this campaign to bring public awareness to the importance of fixing male cats. Fewer than 30 percent of the animals SNYP assists are males, but the number of kittens surrendered at local animal shelters is staggering and unfixed tomcats are one of the biggest causes. A male cat does not have a heat cycle: they are ready, willing and able anytime, and anywhere, and are extremely aggressive in hunting down any female in heat. While a female cat can have up to three litters a year, an active male cat can be responsible for hundreds of offspring a year. Neutering also reduces wandering, cat fights and annoying spraying by male cats marking their territory.
Ten Bucks a Tom is funded in part by Friends of the Animal Shelter (FOTAS) which regularly partners with SNYP to promote spay and neuter efforts.
