Animal Assistance

Spay/Neuter Assistance

Through a generous grant from the WV Department of Agriculture’s WVSNP and matching funds from New Hope Animal Rescue, New Hope Animal Rescue is offering FREE spay/neuter assistance in certain counties. 

We are offering to spay or neuter the pets of qualified, low-income applicants for FREE. This program is being offered to pet owners in Putnam, Lincoln, Logan and Boone counties and will be available until funds are depleted. The services can be performed at Help for Animals in Barboursville, the Fix ‘Em Clinic or Fix Charleston in Charleston or Logan Animal Hospital in Logan. To qualify applicants must currently be receiving assistance from at least one of the following state and federal public assistance programs:

a.  The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP);
b.  Medicaid;
c.  Supplemental Security Income (SSI);
d.  The West Virginia Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP);
e.  Social Security Disability;
f.  Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF);
g.  Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC);
h.  Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP); or
i.  Low Income Veterans Assistance under 38 U.S.C. § 2044

If interested in applying for this program, please send an email to [email protected] or a facebook message with your name, address and number of cats and/or dogs and we will send the application to you. Qualified applicants will receive a voucher to the veterinary facility of their choice and the pet will receive a spay or neuter, rabies vaccine (if needed) and pain medication.

Feral/Community Cats

We are also offering FREE assistance for TNR (trap, neuter, release) of feral/community cats in Putnam, Lincoln, Logan, Boone and Kanawha counties. The services can be performed at Help for Animals in Barboursville, the Fix ‘Em Clinic or Fix Charleston in Charleston or Logan Animal Hospital in Logan.

If interested in applying for the TNR program please send an email to [email protected] or a facebook message at facebook.com/newhoperescuewv with your name, address where the cats reside, county, estimate of how many cats need spayed/neutered and your choice of veterinary facility.  Also indicate if you can trap or need assistance with trapping the cats. 

We are so grateful to the WV Department of Agriculture WVSNP and the wonderful veterinarians for helping us help animals, and people, in our state.
