Shelby Spay Neuter has been solving a severe animal overpopulation problem in Alabama since 2008 – a problem caused by pet owners who are either irresponsible or not aware that Shelby Humane has provided thousands of low cost spay/neuter surgeries to the public. The 5,000 animals received by Shelby Humane last year represents a 30% reduction in the number received just eight years ago.
Many pet owners cite high cost as the reason they do not spay or neuter their pet. It is the mission of Shelby Spay Neuter to provide low cost option to pet owners in Central Alabama. Through partnerships with local veterinarians, and funding from donations and grants, we are able to provide deeply discounted spay and neuter services. At times, we are even able to offer this service for FREE. With the Shelby Spay Neuter program providing such low cost spay and neuter services, the barrier of cost is removed and our clients are able to make the responsible choice to spay and neuter their pet without financial anxiety.
This program is operated strictly with funds secured through grants and donations. We work hard to source the funding for Shelby Spay Neuter and ensure that it is used responsibly. Guidelines have been established and must be adhered to in order for Shelby Humane to continue this program. Administrative costs associated with this program are kept to a minimum as our focus is to secure the spay and neuter surgeries. We work to ensure that every dollar possible goes straight to funding low cost surgeries.
We also provide at least six low cost clinics each year, offering vaccinations and microchipping for people that can’t afford regular veterinary care. Veterinarians in our community have been an important part of helping promote a healthy animal population. Special thanks to Dr. Rhonda Ellison at Calera Animal Hospital.
