I received a coupon from the Humane Society, which offered discount prices for neutering/spaying. A list of participating clinics was included on the coupon. I picked this clinic from the list because it was closest to where I lived.
I took my cat to be neutered, and after I went through the entire intake process and my cat was going into his operation, I went to check out with the desk, gave them my coupon to be told, ""Oh we don't take those coupons"". ""Well"" I said, ""You're clinic is named on the coupon, and the coupon doesn't expire for three more months, so why wouldn't you?"" ""Well, we just don't accept them anymore, we've been trying to get our name taken off the coupons, but we haven't had any luck"".
I don't have to go into much detail explaining why this is absurd, unethical and downright fraudulent do I? I wouldn't have even been there if it hadn't have been for the coupon, so basically I got suckered.
