Expanded Spay/Neuter Programs

Funding Assistance For Pet Owners!

The Siouxland Humane Society has expanded our spay and neuter funding assistance programs available to the Siouxland community to help with the cost of getting their pets fixed. This is possible in part to a grant from the Gilchrist Foundation.

The expanded programs include:

Spay the Mom Cat – for applicants that are in need of having Mother cats spayed.

Owned House Cat – for spay/neuter of owned household cats.

Humane Society Adopted Dogs & Cats

These programs will provide assistance to those who meet the qualifications so that the spay/neuters will cost little to nothing for the pet owner. Completion of a short application may get their pet’s spay/neuter completely paid.

For more information about these exciting new spay/neuter programs stop by the Shelter at 1015 Tri-View Avenue in downtown Sioux City, give us a call at (712) 252-2614, ext. 7 or email us at adopt@siouxlandhumanesociety.org.

Help celebrate and respect animals this week by reflecting on the happiness and joy these companions bring to our lives. In honor of this week we want all families to spend more time appreciating their companion animals.

Encourage family and friends to spay or neuter their pets.

Report animal abuse or neglect.

Demonstrate kindness through action and volunteer at the Shelter.

People and their pets have a very special relationship. Be Kind to Animals Week is a great opportunity to celebrate this unique bond and promote people who take active roles on behalf of animals everywhere!
