Spay / Neuter Assistance Program

The decision to spay or neuter your pet can be the most important decision you make for your pet’s health and to stop the cycle of unwanted pets in your community.  In the U.S. alone, there are over 7 million homeless animals entering shelters every year. No more than half of these animals are adopted. Tragically, the rest are euthanized. These are healthy, sweet pets who would have made great companions.

However, many people realize the benefit of spaying or neutering but find it difficult to pay the costs associated with this procedure.  Thankfully, The Knox Whitley Animal Shelter is willing to help those who qualify for financial assistance.  Please see below for details and contact the shelter for further information.  We’re here to help stop the cycle of unwanted pets so please call!
