Spay/neuter is the only way to reduce unwanted litters and overcrowded shelters. 

The Reduced Cost Spay/Neuter Program is a voucher program that permits residents of Colbert, Lauderdale and Franklin Counties to have their pets  spayed or neutered at a reduced cost.

Why should pets be spayed/neutered?
Social Reasons

While the national pet overpopulation problem is complex, it is clear that the more cats and dogs that get spayed or neutered, the fewer "surprise" litters will occur. Annually, more than three million animals are euthanized in the United States because there are simply not enough homes for all of them. Increasing the number of altered pets will help reduce the number of animals being euthanized.

Medical Reasons

Female Cats and Dogs:

  • Significantly lower risk of mammary (breast) cancer;
  • Eliminates risk of ovarian cancer;
  • Significantly reduces the risk of pyometra (an inflection of the uterus);
  • Eliminates the hassle of having pets go through their "cycles."

Male Cats and Dogs:

  • Eliminates the risk of testicular cancer;
  • Reduces the risk of prostate cancer.

Volunteers Needed




Volunteers are the core and heart of our organization. There are so many ways they can support our mission from nurturing the homeless animals entrusted to their care to showing animals at adoption events and organizing fundraisers.



Fosters Needed




Foster homes provide a valuable service, not only to temporarily house them, but also to assess any behavior issues, socialize, train and prepare them for adoption.
