Pet Helpers’ mission is to end the euthanasia of all adoptable dogs and cats by operating a no-kill shelter, promoting forever adoptions, humane education, and providing low-cost spay/neuter surgeries. Along with our Food Bank, we have created a Spay/Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP) for those needing help to care for the wellness of their furry family members. SNAP offers deeply discounted spay and neuters for cats and dogs, as well as annual vaccinations.
Humane Net is a coalition of animal welfare organizations that promotes low-cost spay and neuter to the community as a means of controlling pet overpopulation.
