Spay and Neuter!

There are more than enough friendly, handsome, and cuddly dogs and cats waiting at shelters to be adopted.
Please don't buy animals from breeders and please don't let your animals reproduce!

March 2011 Spay/Neuter Campaign is on!

We just received word yesterday that a long-time supporter has made a generous donation to our March 2011 spay/neuter campaign! 

Although we still have some fund-raising and grant-writing to do, we can now state definitively that we will be giving away 100 spay/neuter certificates (each worth up to $50) for use during March 2011!  The certificates will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to those in financial need from the Humane Shelter on Hwy. 6 West starting on February 15.  There will be a limit of two coupons per household except in extraordinary circumstances.

Stay tuned for more updates!

What does a spay or neuter cost these days? What will my donation pay for?

Every veterinary clinic is different, but here are some representative discount rates from last year's campaign: 

$75 dog spay or neuter
$60 cat spay
$40 cat neuter

Your gift of $200 neuters five male cats.
Your gift of $150 spays two female dogs.
Your gift of $100 spays one female cat and neuters one male cat.
Your gift of $40 neuters one male cat.

Contribute to Spay/Neuter Campaign March 2011

So far we have received $525 in donations toward our "Be a PAL -- Prevent a Litter" campaign.  That means we are 1/10th of the way to our goal of $5000.  We hope to receive more donations this month as people read about the campaign in the Adair County Humane Society annual newsletter.  Remember that donations are tax-deductible; please designate checks for Campaign 2011 Spay/Neuter.  Thank you!
