Low-Income Spay / Neuter

For the past year, the Pet Pals Board of Directors have been discussing better ways of providing service to our low-income spay/neuter clients. Costs have risen and our income has not kept up with the expenses involved in issuing client vouchers for private veterinary clinics.

After several strategic planning sessions and discussions with other animal non-profits, we are happy to announce that we are partnering with the Humane Society of Jefferson County and Center Valley Animal Rescue to provide a new and more cost-effective model for providing spay/neuter services to low-income community residents. With our financial support, both entities will be able to provide regularly scheduled clinics for low-income Jefferson County residents and will perform spay/neuter surgery as well as providing vaccinations, micro-chips, and other services.

To Participate in Spay/Neuter Clinics

We are now providing financial assistance to ensure there will be an adequate number of clinics to serve the needs of the community as indicated by our years of collected data.

Our Past Accomplishments

The vets and staff at Hadlock Veterinary Clinic, Chimacum Valley Veterinary Hospital, and Oak Bay Animal Hospital have performed all of our low-income and community cat program spay/neuters at a cost which barely covers their services. They have made it possible for us to spay and neuter over 8,000 animals over the past 20 years. We thank them for their generosity and dedication.
