National Spay Day is the fourth Tuesday in February, but rather than concentrating on one day a year to help with spaying or neutering pets, the Barry County Humane Society has expanded the program to every day, all year long for those who need financial assistance, said BCHS President Mary Fisher.
The program is available to Barry County residents who take their pet to a Barry County vet, C-Snip in Grand Rapids or the Kalamazoo Humane Society, she said.
A Barry County resident can get an appointment for the procedure, then call, or come in to the office, and give your name, address and phone number. Tell them if it’s a cat or dog, the sex and name of animal, the name of the veterinarian and date of the appointment.
“We will then call your vet and they will take $20 per pet off your bill. Simple as that. This offer is good for multiple pets, too, and will cover stray dogs and cats along with feral cats,” she said.
“You can help make a difference in lowering the number of unwanted animals coming in to the Barry County Animal Shelter and the shameful pet overpopulation here in the United States by having your pet(s) spayed or neutered today,” Fisher said.
The Humane Society’s office hours are Monday and Thursday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. They are located in the Barry Community Enrichment Center at 231 South Broadway in Hastings, telephone 269-945-0602.
