About the program
SIF is being suspended
from 16 April 2020, 11:59 PM
Reopening date is currently unknown
The issue: pet overpopulation.
The cause: undesexed pets.
The solution: Spay It Forward.
With the financial support of the Vida Group Grant
Program, WA Pet Project has developed an education
based community support program with the aim of
reducing and preventing the number of unwanted pets
in Western Australia.
WHAT IS THE SPAY IT FORWARD PROGRAM?
Spay It Forward is a program that assists struggling pet owners through subsidised (FREE) desexing and microchipping at veterinary clinic locations north and south of the river. This program depends on the generosity of the WA community so that the program is ongoing. As we spend the funds, we need them to be replenished so that other families can benefit too.
If you'd like to donate to help sterilise pets, you can donate directly into our Bank Account below. We will then put the funds towards an urgent and much needed sterilisation of either a cat or dog.
Our bank details are as follows:
