Don't get caught littering! Spay/Neuter your pet today!
A female cat can produce an average litter size of 5 kittens, three or four times per year-each year! Female dogs can produce litters two times per year-each year! The dogs size can determine the size of the litter; ie: small dogs may have 3-8 puppies & large dogs may have 6-20.
Male cats and dogs are capable of reproducing as early as 6 months of age. Males do not go through 'heat' cycles like females; they are capable of reproducing at anytime, anywhere, with any female. At this age, male cats and dogs will become territorial by spraying strong smelling urine inside your home. Because dogs are pack animal, many progressively become more dominant.
Spay/Neuter Incentive Program
I. The S.N.I.P. Voucher program is for pet cats and dogs. The program provides a voucher for a pet owner to spay and/or neuter up to three pets in their household for at a low cost or free depending on the household income level.Since the program's funds are limited, we ask that the voucher be used by pet owners who can not afford this surgery for their pet(s).
II. People may apply for a S.N.I.P. voucher if they are on a financial assistance program like Medicaid, CHIP, Food Stamps, WIC, SSD, Major VA Disability, Section 8 (HUD) or if they have a copy of last year's tax return indicating household income not exceeding the federal low income guidelines. A family of four would need to make less than $33,000 to qualify.
III. When a person applies for a voucher, they must include proof of their income status and/or of the assistance program they are affiliated with. After HSMV approves and processes the application, the person is sent a voucher which can be used at a participating veterinarian. The voucher typically allows for up to three pets to be fixed at no charge. There are some exceptions to this three pet limit and individual arrangements will be made through our office, i.e. for a mother and litter.
