Spay and Neuter

One of the best ways to reduce the number of unwanted pets is to prevent unwanted litters.  One source says that an unspayed dog, her mate, and all of their unaltered decendents can produce 67,000 dogs in six years, and the same scenario for cats can produce a similar number.  That's why two of the most important programs United Animal Friends provides are our Low-Income Spay/Neuter Certificate Program and our Community Cat Program.

The Spay/Neuter Certificate Program helps low-income individuals have their companion animals altered at a very low cost.  Participating veterinary clinics reduce their fees and UAF pays a portion so that the pet guardian is responsible for only a small share of the cost. 

Through the Community Cat Program, UAF provides no-cost spay/neuter certificates so that colony caretakers can trap feral cats and take them to local vets for alteration and ear-tipping, which identifies the cat as having been altered.  Without our help, these cat colonies would grow exponentially and the quality of life for the cats would be greatly diminished.

For more information on these programs or to see if you qualify for assistance through the Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Program, please call 928-778-2924 and leave a message on Line One with your contact information.  A volunteer will call you about the program.
