The Humane Society of Greater KC spays and neuters thousands of pets each year. In 2011 we spayed or neutered nearly 5,505 pets in our low-cost clinic and we're set to do even more in 2012. It's part of our organization's mission and key to ending the problem of pet overpopulation. Thousands of pets are euthanized in KC area shelters and animal control facilities each year.
The HSGKC has created S.P.O.T.S. (Stop Pet Overpopulation Through Surgery), a special fund that assists low-income people with spay/neuter fees.
Studies have shown that the very lowest income areas contribute to 80% of the pet overpopulation problem. Offering surgery fees of $20 or less has been very successful in getting people of low income to respond, thus greatly reducing euthanasia rates.
People who utilize our S.P.O.T.S. program will pay $5-$20 per pet for a spay or neuter surgery. The rest of the surgery costs will be paid from donations made to the S.P.O.T.S. program. Your gift of $45 will spay a large dog and a gift of $30 will neuter a cat.
If you would like to sponsor a spay or neuter surgery through the S.P.O.T.S. program and help reduce euthanasia in the KC metro area, please make a tax-deductible donation today.
