We are happy to announce to the animal lovers of Lanzarote that the Animal Shelter Sara is launching a Sterilisation and Identification Campaign together with the local authorities to offer these at... half price!!! Yes, you read it right: 50% discount!!!
Sara has been meeting over a period of time with the island’s local authorities to negotiate subsidies for residents and their efforts are coming to light in the shape of the "Save Lifes, Sterilise!" Campaign.
There are many benefits to sterilising your pet, not only in relation to the animal's health but it also minimises the urge of the males wandering off looking for females when they are in heat, also avoiding unwanted litters and in turn decreases abandonment, to name but a few. You can also find a list of other benefits here (10-beneficios-de-esterilizar-a-tu-mascota)
There is a limited number of subsidies available and they will be granted on a strict first come fist served basis, so if you had been thinking of sterilising your pet but didn't have the funds to do it, don't miss your chance.
Currently there are only 3 participating municipalities: Arrecife, Haría and San Bartolomé .
But do not despair if you don't live in any of these, as other town halls have showed interest in adhering to this campaign too. We will read more »
