The PAWS Clinic Receives $9,750 Spay & Neuter Grant from BISSELL Pet Foundation for the “Neuter is Cuter” program

Funds will provide discounted neuter surgery for male dogs and cats

The PAWS Clinic of Taylor announced it has been awarded a
$9,750 grant from BISSELL Pet Foundation to support its “Neuter is Cuter”
program, which targets male dogs and male cats. This dedicated grant will help reduce the
homeless pet population by preventing unwanted litters of stray cats and dogs in the
community.

BISSELL Pet Foundation’s investment allows The PAWS Clinic to offer neuter surgeries for
male cats at only $50, a $25 discount off the standard $75 fee. Male dog neuters are
discounted to $165 for dogs up to 75 pounds, which is a discount of $35 off the standard $200
fee. The fee for larger dogs is higher, but the $35 savings still applies to larger dogs.
With thousands of pets abandoned each year, proactive spay and neuter procedures address
the root cause of animal overpopulation by preventing unwanted births, freeing up shelter space
for pets in need, and saving pets from potential abandonment or euthanasia. BISSELL Pet
Foundation awards numerous grants every year to shelters across the country, including The
PAWS Clinic, to help protect and save animal lives. In 2021, more than $1.3 million was
provided through grants to shelters for spay/neuter procedures.

“With the recent overcrowding crisis shelters are facing throughout the country, supporting our
partner’s preventative spay and neuter efforts has become even more critical to impacting the
lives of both homeless and owned pets,” said Cathy Bissell, founder of BISSELL Pet
Foundation. “We also strongly encourage all pet owners to be responsible and have their pets
sterilized to do their part to end pet homelessness.”

“The PAWS Clinic is so excited to be able to offer this program to the community,” said Chrissy
Romano-McGill, Director of Operations at The PAWS Clinic. “With BISSELL Pet Foundation’s
support, we are able to offer a significantly discounted fee to the owners of male dogs and cats
in our community. We are hopeful that the “Neuter is Cuter” program will make it affordable for
everyone to get this important surgery for their male pets.”

“Neutering is obviously important to help control pet overpopulation, but it is also important for
the health of both cats and dogs,” said Dr. Taylor Fisher, a veterinarian at The PAWS Clinic.
“Neutering significantly reduces the risk of testicular and prostate cancer in animals,” said Dr.
Fisher. “Further, there are also a number of undesirable behaviors that can be reduced or
eliminated if a male pet is neutered. These include spraying/marking territory, humping,
aggression, and running away.”

Space for this program is limited, and appointments are required. To schedule your male dog or
cat’s appointment, call The PAWS Clinic at 313-451-8200. You must mention “Neuter is
Cuter” when scheduling the appointment to qualify for the special program pricing. Please note
that this special pricing only applies to male cats and dogs.

To date, BISSELL Pet Foundation has awarded $7.6 million dollars in dedicated spay and
neuter grants to shelters throughout the United States and the world to help animal welfare
organizations. In addition to spay and neuter grants, BISSELL Pet Foundation provides
additional support to shelters across the country through sponsoring adoption events,
heartworm grants, ground and air transports of shelter animals and more, impacting tens of
thousands of animals every year.
