Helping Hands Rescue is committed to spaying/neutering as many dogs and cats as possible in our community. This is our main focus and mission. We need to stop the over population and reproduction of these animals and the unnecessary suffering they endure.
In the area we serve, cats are the biggest problem we see. There are just too many strays/ferals out roaming. A mature female cat can have three litters, possibly more per year, with each litter having 3-5 kittens or more. In just seven years a pair of cats can turn into 420,000 kittens.
It is possible for a female dog (depending on size and breed) to have a maximum of three litters a year. Female dogs can go into heat around the age of six to 12 months and do not go into menopause. Assuming a dog lives to the average age of 11, a dog could have up to 30 litters.
With our spay/neuter program, we will always pay 1/3 of the cost of a routine spay/neuter surgery and pain medication only. We also can help with the cost of feral colonies. If you would like financial assistance, please set up an appointment with your veterinary first and then complete the following request for a spay/neuter certificate.
