If you are a cat owner in the Wabash Valley region, you may be wondering how to spay or neuter your furry friend without breaking the bank.
Spaying and neutering are important procedures that can prevent unwanted litters, reduce the risk of certain diseases, and improve your cat’s behavior and health.
However, they can also be costly and inaccessible for some pet owners.
Fortunately, there are some options available for low-cost spay/neuter services in Terre Haute, thanks to the efforts of Pet Friendly Services of Indiana and other local organizations.
Pet Friendly Services of Indiana is a statewide nonprofit animal welfare organization that provides free and discounted surgeries to rescues, shelters, community cat programs, and limited-income pet owners.
Here are some of the upcoming opportunities to spay/neuter your cat for less in Terre Haute:
Public Vet Clinics at the Wabash Valley Fairgrounds
Pet Friendly Services of Indiana has partnered with Public Vet to offer financial assistance for spaying and neutering cats.
They will be hosting low-cost spay/neuter clinics at the Wabash Valley Fairgrounds in Terre Haute on May 26 and 27. The cost of the procedure is $90. Cats from the Wabash Valley region are welcome to attend.
Appointments for the surgeries are required and spots are limited. Interested individuals can sign up at www.pub.vet.
For cases with demonstrated financial need, additional discounts are available with support from Pet Friendly Services, Project HOPE, and the Terre Haute Humane Society.
Project Hope Vouchers at the Main Library
Project Hope is another program that provides spay/neuter assistance to low-income pet owners residing within the city limits of Terre Haute. To obtain an assistance voucher, individuals can visit the main library on May 20 between 10 a.m. and noon.
They will need to bring a photo ID, proof of government assistance, proof of residency, and pay $25 per voucher requested. Project Hope covers the remaining cost of the surgery.
The vouchers can be redeemed at any participating veterinarian in the area. A list of participating vets can be found at www.projecthopein.org.
