Why Spay and Neuter?

Spaying and neutering is the responsible and healthy choice you can make for your pet. The benefits include: reduced risk of certain cancers, reduced territory marking and spraying behaviors, lower stress in you and your pet and the elimination of accidental litters of puppies and kittens. Spaying or neutering your pet will help them live longer and healthier lives.

If you are unable to afford the costs of spay/neuter of your pets, we can help. We offer low cost spay/neuter services to Hardin and surrounding counties.

Applying for the assistance program is easy!

If your pet is not up to date, these will be provided for your pet. We also provide limited other services at the time of surgery only.

Are You Feeding Community Cats?

Thanks to donations by our generous supporters, caretakers of community cats in Hardin County are able to have those cats, spayed or neutered, vaccinated and ear-tipped and return them to their outdoor homes at no cost to them. This helps to make the cat population in our communities healthier and more manageable.

Complete an assistance application and note that the cat(s) you are applying for are community cats.
