TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Humane Society of Southern Arizona is launching a 'Precious, Not Parents' campaign for June. 

Thanks to a grant from PetSmart Charities the HSSA will be offering spay/neuter surgery for $20 for all puppies and kittens six months and younger. While some pet owners worry that their animal is too young for the surgery, it is actually a safe procedure and can be performed on animals as young as eight to ten weeks old, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association. 

"While we think they are still babies, kittens as young as 4 months and puppies as young as 5 months are still old enough to get pregnant and have their first litter just two months later," says Samantha Esquivel, HSSA Public Relations Lead, in a recent release. The HSSA performs some 1,200 spay/neuter surgeries each month, according to the release, and many are on young animals.

The special June rate of $20 is even lower than the normal low cost procedure.  Those wishing to take advantage of this special rate must mention the 'Precious, Not Parents' campaign when scheduling their pet's appointment.

There are a limited number of surgeries available, for more information or to schedule an appointment please go online to www.hssaz.org or call 881-0321.
