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!

Three Incentives to Spay/Neuter during March 2011

The Adair County Humane Society is pleased to announce our second annual “Be a PAL – Prevent a Litter” spay/neuter campaign:

1) Several local veterinarians have agreed to reduce their rates for spay/neuter during this month.  (See post below for more details.)

2) 100 spay/neuter certificates worth up to $50 will be available for those in financial need.  Certificates may be picked up from the Animal Shelter starting on February 15.

3) Anyone who spays or neuters their dog and/or cat during March 2011 will be eligible to enter our prize drawing.  Our grand prize will be a Nintendo Wii game console donated by a private individual; other prizes have been donated by local businesses.

Questions?  Feel free to type them below.

Spay/Neuter Certificates Available on Tuesday!

Special spay/neuter certificates worth up to $50 will be available
  • for people who could not otherwise afford to have their animals fixed
  • beginning on Tuesday, February 15 at 9:00 a.m. until supplies run out
  • from the Adair County Humane Society's Animal Shelter on Hwy. 6 (West of Kirksville) 
  • during regular shelter hours: Monday-Friday 9-4 and Saturday 9-12
  • on a first-come, first-served basis (supplies are limited)
  • limit two per household except in extraordinary circumstances
  • must be redeemed during the month of March 2011
Note: Funds for these certificates come from special donations from individuals who care deeply about the welfare of animals in this county; they do not come from the Shelter's regular, modest operating budget.  We reserve the right to refuse to give certificates to individuals at our discretion.
