Spay / Neuter Program

Low Cost Spay / Neuter

In 2009 we began a low cost spay and neuter program for pets whose owners live in Duplin County and have  a financial need. In the last 4 years, thanks to our participating veterinarians, we have helped alter over 1600 pets.

Grants from the Albert Schweitzer Animal Welfare Fund and the North Carolina Community Foundation help fund this program.
