Help control the pet homelessness crisis, which results in millions of healthy dogs and cats being euthanized in the United States each year, simply because there aren’t enough homes to go around.
Having your pet altered has many advantages. Spayed and neutered pets:
- Do not add to the tragedy of pet over-population
- Are less susceptible to many serious diseases
- Live longer on average than unaltered pets
- Have fewer behavioral problems such as spraying
- Have less desire to roam, so they are less likely to be injured in traffic or by other animals
- Are loving and protective family members
As an organization, it is very important to us to do all we can to prevent pet over-population. Spaying and neutering is the only effective way to prevent unwanted litters from being born. Unfortunately, not everyone has the means to provide this type of surgery for their pet. The EMCSPCA Spay/Neuter Assistance Program was established for this purpose. This program is funded entirely by donations. We ask that only those in need of financial help use this program. If you are able, a donation to this very worthwhile and much needed program would be appreciated.
Our program pays a portion of the surgical fees charged by local vets. All local mountain area vets accept our vouchers. Vouchers are not accepted at HOPE Animal Foundation. Please call (559) 683-1266 press 1, and leave your name, address, phone number and how many vouchers you need. Vouchers will be mailed within 48 hours. If you are using this program, you must have your voucher when you check you register your pet at the vet. You may also email firstname.lastname@example.org to request vouchers.
If you are low-income and reside in Madera county (must have valid ID), have EBT card and Medi-Cal, you may qualify for a program provided by the Friends of Madera Animal Shelter. Cats are spayed or neutered for $30 and dogs are spayed or neutered for $40. You may inquire by contacting them at (559) 363-5106.
