Spay/Neuter Assistance

UPDATE: We will not accept any more applications after 6/30/2020. We are processing the applications submitted and they will all be sent out by the end of this week. We have received several requests for TNR and will respond to those requests. Thank you for your interest in helping to reduce the number of unwanted litters.

Through a generous grant from the West Virginia Department of Agriculture and matching funds from New Hope Animal Rescue, we are offering to spay or neuter a cat for $10 or spay or neuter a dog for $15.  This program is being offered to pet owners in Putnam, Mason, Lincoln and Wayne 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, both located in Charleston.

If you are approved you will receive one authorization for each pet listed on the application.  The owner will need to pay a co-pay of $10 or $15 for each pet being spayed or neutered at the time of the surgery.  A rabies vaccine will also be given if needed.  New Hope Animal Rescue will cover the remainder of the spay/neuter fee and the rabies vaccine.

If this application is not completed in its entirety it will not be processed.  Please review the application prior to submitting to ensure it is complete so that we can process your request quickly.

Please note:  If you are approved for this assistance and your authorization expires you will need to resubmit your application.

Thank you for your interest in our spay/neuter program and efforts to reduce the number of unwanted litters of puppies and kittens in our area!
