New spay and neuter programs happening now!

The Danville Area Humane Society is thrilled to announce two spay/neuter programs.

On September 13th and 14th, the PETA mobile clinic will once again be at the Danville animal shelter. This year, 140 surgeries will be performed in those two days. There are still a few openings for dogs, and several for cats, so sign up now!

“Through the courtesy of the E. Stuart James Grant Charitable Trust, the surgery will be free to City of Danville residents,” said Paulette Dean, director. “The surgery for pets owned by Pittsylvania County residents will be $10 for cats and $15 for dogs.”

Limited additional services will be provided at greatly reduced prices, but the pet owner is responsible for those costs.

Appointments can be made by calling (434) 799-0843. There is a limit of two pets per household.

“We also are happy to announce an increase in our spay/neuter rebate certificates,” said Dean. “Beginning August 10th and continuing through August 31st, rebate certificates will be up to $35 for Pittsylvania County residents and up to $75 for Danville City residents.”

The following guidelines apply:

The rebate certificates must be picked up at least one day before the animal is taken to the clinic for the surgery.
The pets must have an owner who is responsible for the ongoing care of the animal.
The animal must live in Danville/Pittsylvania County and the owner must reside there also.
The certificate may not be used for any animal adopted from another shelter or rescue group.
If the cat is feral, there must be an owner who is prepared to provide food, water, and shelter for the cat. The cat may not be released on to any public property, but must live on the property of the person trapping and releasing the cat.
The certificate must be dated at least the day before the animal is taken in for the surgery.
The certificate cannot be combined with any other DAHS program, including DAHS grant money paid to veterinarians.
The surgery must be completed between August 10th, 2017 through November 1, 2017, and the certificates must be redeemed within two weeks of the date of the surgery.

“The only way to decrease the number of animals received at shelters is to decrease the number of unwanted animals,” Dean said. “We hope many citizens take advantage of these programs.”

Addition: The rebate certificates must be used at a local veterinary clinic. Proof of residency in the City will be required for both programs.
