UPDATE – Please note date change


We’re proud to announce we’ve received a spay/neuter grant from BISSELL Pet Foundation! Out of BISSELL Pet Foundation’s partner network of nearly 5,000 shelters and rescues, we’re so excited that we were chosen to receive their support! With a mission to find every pet a home, they focus their efforts on adoption, spay/neuter, microchipping and emergency support. With this funding we will be able to help reduce spay/neuter costs in our community and offer additional discounts that normally could not be given, making spay/neuter more affordable.
