May 19, 2017 (San Diego) - Kitten season is upon us and the County’s Department of Animal Services is getting flooded with kittens. The department is offering spay and neuter coupons to help lower the cat population: $100 for females and $50 for males.

Many of the new arrivals are too small to be put in homes yet, but will be available for adoptions in coming weeks. Many other cats are in need of a forever home now. Visit the Adoptions Page

spay and neuter coupons

Wow really? This is what I am talking about folks, the city must realize that we are the poorest city in the county, right ? And that would mean that poor people must live there, right ? So what makes them think we as poor people can afford to spend $100 on the cat? We are going to spend $100 on some food and bills before we spend it on the dam cat, do you feel me? So with them making so much money off of us citizens for so long now, they can afford to bring that cost down to something reasonable like say maybe $20 or $30. I sure do hope with this new animal shelter the prices for visits and such are not set at this type of scale. We need to make sure they put our money back into the community. This is a prime example of the governing people not putting back when it's needed and they can do it but don't. Why? Because our cats and kittens don't mean anything to them, they just want more of our money. Sorry to get real like that but it needed to be done.
