As part of an ongoing campaign to lower the number of unplanned and unwanted litters on the island, the Maui Humane Society announced plans to offer a low cost sterilization clinic and free Zeuterin training.
The agency describes Zeuterin as a method that used a chemical sterilization process, versus the traditional surgical sterilization, leaving a male dog’s testicles intact.
The Maui Humane Society notes that most male dogs at least three months of age and under 75 pounds are candidates for this procedure.
The training is being offered in association with Animal Balance, to any veterinarian or vet tech on March 3, 2015.
The low cost Zeuterin sterilization clinic will be held on March 4, the day after the free training, with 50 available appointments at a cost of $40 each. This includes Zeuter and microchip, and an additional $7 fee if the dog is not licensed.
More information on appointments and training is available at the Maui Humane Society website, or by calling MHS at (808) 877-3680, option 3.
