Mission: Providing low-cost spay/neuter services and animal wellness programs
Programs: Spay/neuter program-provides low or no cost spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations and other medical services for owned pets and free-roaming cats. During 2014, there was a significant lowering of the number of unwanted dogs and cats at the county shelter. The program concentrates on un-owned cats roaming the community. Efforts since 2006 have resulted in a 50% decrease in the number of cats entering the county shelter.
francis fund-provides emergency vet care subsidies to low-income pet owners and rescuers of injured pets.
microchip program-we provide low-cost microchip id for pets being registered for spay/neuter services and hold 2-3 clinics during the year. The goal is to increase the number of pets entering the shelter or brought to local vets being identified and returned to their owners. The program is now more valuable because the state of nc has mandated that local shelters scan for microchips as the animals enter the shelter
