DO YOU NEED TO GET YOUR PET FIXED BUT CAN’T AFFORD IT?

THE FRANKLIN COUNTY HUMANE SOCIETY CAN HELP!


The Franklin County Humane Society has a low-cost spay program for female dogs
and cats that belong to qualified low-income residents of Franklin County.

 
COST: $10 for a Cat Spay and $15 for a Dog Spay

$20 for a Male Cat Neuter and Male Dog Neuter $40-70


Female pets are given priority because of limited funding.  Surgeries will be performed at Animal Care Center, Midtown Veterinary, and Town & Country Veterinary Hospital. 
Pets must have a current rabies shot or their owners must pay the vet’s office for it. 
Owner will also be required to pay for a flea treatment if the pet is infested on the day of surgery.

To qualify for our program, you must demonstrate need by participating in any of the following programs:  Food Stamps, AFDC, Families First, Public Housing, Section 8, SSI, SSD, VA Disability, Medicaid or WIC --- OR, proof of income below HUD limits for Franklin County (bring or copy tax return).

You may bring this application to Animal Harbor with your proof of income, ID, and co-pay, or mail it all to us.  We will contact you to arrange for your vet appointment.
