NORFOLK, Va. – PETA will be offering free spay and neuter surgeries in return for vegan food.

The donations are to help Council Member Sharon Scott’s 16th Annual Holiday Food Drive.

Families who donate seven items of nonperishable vegan food for humans—such as canned vegetables, beans, or soups—will receive a a free spay or neuter for an animal companion, said PETA.

The spaying and neutering will occur at the Denbigh Community Center on December 13, in Newport News from 8 – 9 a.m.

Dogs will be accepted form 8 – 8:30 a.m., and cats from 8:30 – 9 a.m.

PETA says that appointments are limited, and can be made by calling 757-622-7382, Ext. 3, or by clicking here.

“PETA’s clinics have spayed and neutered more than 12,000 dogs and cats just this year, and now is the perfect time for animal guardians to make a New Year’s resolution to help us snip animal overpopulation in the bud,” says PETA Senior Vice President Daphna Nachminovitch. “By participating in the Holiday Food Drive, animal guardians can help feed those in need while reducing the number of puppies and kittens born into homelessness.”

Since 2001 PETA has performed low-cost spay and neuter surgeries on more than 149,000 dogs and cats.
