Low-cost spay & neuter grants for cats! Hurry!

PLEASE spay and neuter your pets. If you are on any public assistance, please take advantage of this quickly. Move fast!
The Willamette Humane Society has received a grant to provide subsidized spay/neuter surgeries for 350 cats whose owners receive federal or state income assistance.

The Handsel Foundation, a family foundation dedicated to providing financial support to organizations working in the area of animal welfare, awarded the grant.

Families or individuals in Marion and Polk counties who receive some form of government assistance are eligible for the subsidized surgery rate of $20 to spay and $10 to neuter. Appointments are required, and the subsidized surgeries are on a first-come first-served basis.

Regular prices are $35 for a male cat neuter and $55 for a female cat spay.

The Willamette Humane Society Spay & Neuter Clinic is at 4246 Turner Road SE.
