What We Do
Spay/Neuter

Spaying and neutering the best way to address pet over overpopulation. These procedures also have proven health benefits for pets, including reducing or eliminating the risk of certain types of illnesses. The Humane Society offers a low-cost spay/neuter program for people with limited income. Dogs and cats can become pregnant as early as 4 months of age, so don't wait for an accident to happen!

 

If your mother cat has a litter, we will spay her for free. All we ask is you keep mom and her kittens together for eight weeks. We will then provide all of the needed care and find loving homes for the kittens. You can keep mom and never have to worry about another unwanted litter. Call us to learn more at 518.886.9645. You do not need to income-qualify for this program.
