Starting Wednesday 29th March!

snip’n’chip comes to the Wairarapa

Wellington SPCA is delighted to launch snip’n’chip in the Wairarapa, thanks to the support of New Zealand Companion Animal Register, two local Councils and seven local veterinary practices throughout the region!

We are offering heavily discounted desexing and microchipping for your favourite feline:

  • Snip’n’chip your cat or kitten for just $9; this includes desexing, microchipping and registration of the chip on NZCAR.
  • Vet chippin’ for your pet for $4; this includes microchipping your cat or kitten and registration of the chip on NZCAR.

Our aim is to help all Wairarapa cat owners to provide the best possible life for their cats. To do this we want to: 

  • Reduce the number of unwanted kittens - happier cats all round!
  • Help all lost cats find their way home - happier owners all round!
  • Offer sound advice on how pets and native wildlife can better share their urban and suburban surroundings.

It's very simple: buy one of two available offers at any of the participating local veterinary practices or at the SPCA Op Shop in Masterton and get your feline friend booked in.
