The Cedar Bend Humane Society is excited to announce our new, in-house spay and neuter program for our shelter pets!
This program allows us to have all our shelter pets that are at least 12 weeks of age spayed or neutered before being adopted.
Thanks to a very generous donation from one of our financial supporters, we were able to purchase all the equipment necessary for these in-house spays and neuters. This program is also made possible thanks to a partnership with a local vet who will perform all the surgeries for us.
According to the ASPCA, only 10 percent of the animals entering shelters are spayed or neutered. The cost of spaying or neutering a pet is less than the cost of raising puppies or kittens for a year.
Part of our mission is to educate the community about responsible pet ownership. We believe spaying and neutering our homeless pets is a major component of responsible pet care, which is why this in-house program is so important and exciting for us.
