February is Spay/Neuter Awareness Month, with World Spay Day celebrated annually on the fourth Tuesday of the month.

This year the newly-formed Animal Welfare Coalition of Perth and Oxford Counties has invited all veterinary clinics in the two counties to offer discounted spay/neuter surgeries to mark the month.

So far two have signed on, Avon Pet Hospital and Perth Veterinary Services, both in Stratford.

Those two clinics will be offering the discounted surgeries during the week of February 24th.
