April is National Prevent a Litter (PAL) Month and the Humane Society of Utah is joining shelters across the nation in urging pet owners to spay and neuter their animals.

Because cats are among the most prolific breeders among pets, the society is issuing certificates good for half off the price of neutering a male cat at the society's clinic, 4613 S. 4000 West.Some 300 discount certificates will be available on a first-come, first-served basis throughout April. The coupons may be redeemed during June, July and August.

Owners of other pets are encouraged to take advantage of the society's low-cost spay and neuter services, which are available year-round.

For more information about the program contact the society at 968-3548.
