Four million cats and dogs—about one every eight seconds—are put down in U.S. shelters each year.
Often these animals are the offspring of cherished family pets. Spay/neuter is a proven way to reduce pet overpopulation, ensuring that every pet has a family to love them.
Citizens are encouraged to promote spaying and neutering through their veterinarian. For those in need of assistance, please consider one of the following alternatives:
The Surgical Sterilization Assistance Program (S.S.A.P.) through the Humane Society of Lee County provides low cost spay and neuter surgery for people on public assistance. Call them at 239-332-2719 for appointment.
Lee County Domestic Animal Services offers discounts on spay/neuter surgery for dogs and cats licensed in Lee County. Call LEE-PETS.
