Press release:
 
Volunteers For Animals is proud to announce that we have once again been awarded a grant from the ASPCA to provide low-cost spay and neuter of canines and felines belonging to NYS residents who receive public assistance. (ASPCA -- American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals)
 
The grant, via a voucher system, will cover the spaying or neutering of the pet, a rabies vaccine, a distemper vaccine and deworming.
 
For many years, Volunteers For Animals has been committed to spaying and neutering all animals prior to adoption at the Genesee County Animal Shelter. We are now expanding that commitment to help pet owners in the community.
 
We understand the pressing need to spay and neuter dogs and cats to alleviate the pet over-population epidemic. Volunteers For Animals has partnered with local veterinarians and their staff to provide quality, low-cost services to low-income residents in Genesee and surrounding counties.
 
We believe that not only will this program help to reduce the pet overpopulation problem but will benefit the quality of life for both pet owners and pets. We believe that sterilized pets present a win-win situation. The pet is generally healthier and the pet-owner relationship is generally less stressful and, therefore, more enjoyable.

The voucher is $20 and the pet owner must show proof of public assistance. It is for Orleans, Wyoming and Genesee county residents. We accept cash or checks only, no credit cards.

To receive a voucher, the pet owner must come into the Shelter during adoption hours to purchase the voucher. We have four local vets who participate and the pet owner makes their own appointment for the surgery. An email can also be sent to info@vol4animals.org for more information.
