Operation Spay Neuter partners with local veterinarians to subsidize the spaying and neutering of pets for individuals who have a financial need and those who care for homeless companion animals and strays/ferals.
Overpopulation is the #1 problem for pets in America. There are more dogs and cats than there are loving homes to care for them. Our goal is to have no more unwanted or homeless litters being born to dogs and cats in our community.
About 5 million ‘excess’ dogs and cats will be killed in US shelters this year and millions more are homeless. Please do not contribute to this problem. Be responsible and spay/neuter your dogs and cats.
