Pet parents in Payson, Pine, Strawberry, Tonto Basin or Young are eligible to receive no-cost spay or neuter services for their pets through voucher program
PAYSON, AZ– [FEB. 1ST, 2017]– The Humane Society of Central Arizona announced today it received more than $95,000 from PetSmart Charities, the leading funder of animal welfare in North America, to help fuel its spay and neuter efforts to proactively reduce homeless pet overpopulation in communities and neighborhoods across central Arizona. With the help of this grant, the organization will offer no-cost spay or neuter services for pet parents in Payson, Pine, Strawberry, Tonto Basin or Young while funds last.
Members of the community are encouraged to utilize these no-cost services in hopes of controlling the growing pet population in these areas. “At PetSmart Charities, we are committed to ending pet homelessness. With the help of this grant, spay and neuter services are affordable for members of the central Arizona community. We know the Humane Society of Central Arizona will make a tremendous impact and effectively move the needle to help pets and pet parents in need,” said Jenny Aho, regional relationship manager. Last year, Phoenix-based PetSmart Charities also delivered grant support of more than $92,000, enabling the Humane Society of Central Arizona to help over 800 hundred low-income pet parents get their dogs and cats spayed/neutered, vaccinated and receive general wellness exams.
In order to receive a voucher, local pet parents must bring a piece of mail or photo I.D down to the shelter that shows your name and a current Payson, Pine, Strawberry, Tonto Basin or Young address to the Humane Society of Central Arizona. Residents will then receive a voucher that can be used at four different veterinary clinics in Payson or at the organization mobile clinic. For more information regarding an upcoming spay and neuter clinic held at HSCAZ will be available on the website www.humanesocietycentralaz.org, or by calling the shelter directly.
The shelter is located at 605 W Wilson Court and is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. For questions, please call the shelter at 928-474-5590 or keep an eye out for the organization in the local community.
