sn-notenough.jpgWe can help your pet get fixed!

We've helped 1,859 dogs and many cats get fixed since our Spay/Neuter Assistance Program began in November 2009!

        Happy Paws Happy Homes offers 4 ways to help pet parents in the Blair County area with low-cost spay/neuter!

 

Option A: Sign up for one of our low-cost SpEuter Days

Spay/Neuter Days are for pets who NEED the transport from Tyrone or Huntingdon. If you do NOT need transport, see option B.

Surgeries performed at the Allegheny S/N Clinic in Woodland (11 miles north of Philipsburg) with transport available from/to Tyrone and Huntingdon

On a spay/neuter day, costs are: $110 for female dogs (includes neuter, rabies vaccine, nail trim & transport)

                                                    $95 for male dogs (includes same)

                                                    $70 for female cats

                                                    $55 for male cats

Please contact us about appointment availability before making a payment. A $15 non-refundable deposit is required to hold a space and is deducted from the surgery total. Spaces are limited and by reservation.

Upcoming Spay/Neuter Days are: November 30 (spaces still available for male cats), December 14 (spaces still available for all dogs and cats) - Again, these dates are for pets who NEED transportation from Huntingdon or Tyrone to the clinic. If you can supply your own transportation, see option B (vouchers).

Option B: Low-cost vouchers
 
Vouchers are available to anyone who can provide their own transportation to either of the Allegheny Spay/Neuter Clinic's offices (Woodland, 11 miles north of Philipsburg, or Centre Hall. Vouchers (for cats only) are also useable at All Pets Clinic in State College.There are no income restrictions or applications required.

Voucher costs are: $110 for female dogs (includes neuter, rabies vaccine, nail trim & transport)

                              $95 for male dogs (includes same)

                              $85 for female cats

                              $65 for male cats

The cost of the voucher is paid to HPHH in full, mailed to you after we receive your contact info and some information about your pet, and required to be brought with you at the time of your appointment. The appointment is scheduled by you directly with the clinic.

 
 
 

Option C: Is your dog a pit bull? Sign up for Fix-A-Bull!

Pet overpopulation is Fix-A-Bull! Happy Paws Happy Homes loves pit bulls, but sadly, they account for as much as 25% of all dogs in our nation's shelters. Statistics show that only 1 in 500 pit bulls finds a home for life. We find this unacceptable. The Fix-A-Bull Program has helped 440 local pit bulls get fixed to date.

We ask those of you who are considering inquiring about the Fix-A-Bull Program to:
- only ask for these funds if you cannot afford the regular spay/neuter prices that we offer
- mention the Fix-A-Bull Program by name when you inquire about getting your pit fixed
- be prepared to send us a photo of your dog
- understand that we may not be able to assist pit mixes based on the available funding

Fix-A-Bull surgeries cost the pet parent only $25 (includes spay or neuter, rabies vaccine and nail trim). The other 75% of the surgery cost is paid for by HPHH. Surgeries are done at the Allegheny Spay/Neuter Clinic (offices in Woodland and Centre Hall). We can provide transportation between Huntingdon, Tyrone and the Allegheny Spay/Neuter Clinic on one of our Spay/Neuter Days for an additional $10.

To sign your dog up for Fix-A-Bull:

1. Contact us to ask if funds are available.

2. Fill out and send us the form to the right.

3. Email a picture with your name and dog's name to spayneuter@happypawshappyhomes.org or text one with your name to 814-360-7383.

4. We will contact you upon receipt of the form and picture.

5. The $25 is collected at the time of sign up (payment made at www.happypawshappyhomes.org/id3.html or by check/money order to HPHH, P.O.Box 22, Tyrone 16686). All spay/neuter costs are non-refundable (credit is offered toward another date or pet).

The vouchers cover up to $50 of the cost of a spay or neuter surgery at a veterinary office's regular pricing. The amount covered by the voucher is based on available funding. At the time of application, there may be a waiting list.

Vouchers must be presented at the time of spay/neuter appointment.

 According to current trend, at least 3 million companion animals will be euthanized in American shelters during this year.
Countless others will suffer abuse and neglect at the hands of their "owners."
 
By spaying and neutering just one animal, you can prevent the birth of hundreds of other companion animals, improve the overall health, behavior and longevity of your pet, and help us work toward a time when every pet in this country has a good home.

CONSIDER THIS:

There are 45 cats and dogs for every person born.
Only 1 out of 10 dogs born ever get a home.

Only 1 out of 12 cats born ever find a home.
800 dogs & cats are KILLED each HOUR in the U.S, because there are not enough homes for them.
