The Bangor Humane Society posted via their Facebook page, that on July 10th and 11th, they will be hosting a spaying and neutering clinic for the kitties! They've teamed up with the Old Town Animal Orphanage to help fix as many cats as they can in the Penobscot County area.

They do require that all cats that come in must be between 12 weeks and 5 years old, and in decent health. In addition to the surgery itself, kitties will also get an initial checkup and a rabies shot. There are other services available as well such as a distemper shot, de-worming, and flea treatment.

The clinic will be held at the Old Town Elks Club on Tuesday and Wednesday, July 10th and 11th, and cats can be dropped off starting at 10:00a.m. Tuesday, and 7:30-8:00a.m. on Wednesday. And your furry little feline friends can be picked up that night at 5:30p.m.

They're even offering a steep discount to those who qualify, down to $20 for the service. Other folks it will cost $80. And naturally, appointments are required and will need to be made ahead of time. It will not be a walk-up sort of event, and space is very limited. So make your appointment today by calling 721-8395.

Getting our pets fixed is always a great idea for 100 reasons. But for me, the most important will be that I'll always have an opening line for a conversation with Bob Barker if I ever have a chance to meet him! And you know, I suppose doing things that keep are kitties safe is a great reason too.
