SPAY AND NEUTER ASSISTANCE
The Humane Society of Putnam County announced the launch of a new no-cost spay/neuter assistance program to Putnam County residents and their pets in June.
This new program provides a free spay/neuter, paid in full by the HSPC, to Putnam County residents looking to fix their pets, and help keep the animal population under control in the county.
This free voucher can be redeemed at SPOT Clinic in Cloverdale and will cover the full cost of a cat or dog spay/neuter for up to two pets per household per year. Pet owners should plan to provide proof of rabies vaccination upon arrival, but for animals not currently vaccinated for rabies, the voucher will also cover the cost of bringing the animal up-to-date on their rabies vaccine, if assistance is needed.
Spay/Neuter vouchers can be picked up at Rescued Treasures (1021 Indianapolis Rd.) on designated Fridays and Saturdays between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Thanks to the support of groups like the 100 Women Who Care, local donations and fundraisers, and the participants of the HSPC 5K, as well as the support of SPOT clinic, the Humane Society is able to provide this assistance without barriers on program applicants.
Please direct questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or (765)653-7174. Leave a message if nobody answers, and we will return your call as soon as possible.
COMMUNITY & FERAL CAT TNR

Our funds for this program are NOT unlimited and your assistance, if accepted will be asked. The applications will be treated on a first come basis.

The HSPC provides low cost microchipping services for Putnam County residents. The outpatient procedure costs $10 per pet at the low cost microchipping clinics offered by the HSPC. Be sure to contact Rescued Treasures or check our Facebook page to learn more about these clinic.
Microchipping is a popular technology used to identify unclaimed pets. The microchip, a tiny “pet ID” transponder the size of a grain of rice, is injected beneath the surface of the animal’s skin. When scanned by a microchip scanner, the chip emits a low radio frequency, transmitting the animal’s ID code to identify the owner’s contact information.
Implanting a microchip is a simple procedure that does not require anesthesia. Microchips are not a GPS device.
Registration: When an animal is microchipped at a Humane Society clinic or at the Putnam County Animal Shelter, the HSPC provides free registration to ensure the chip is registered in the national database.
