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.

Be Kind To Animals Week
Be Kind to Animals Week represents the tradition of celebrating and respecting animals. This week reflect on the happiness and joy these companions bring to our lives.

In addition, here are a few suggestions for ways to show kindness to the animals that don't live in your house:

Encourage family and friends to spay or neuter their pets.

Report animal abuse or neglect.

Demonstrate kindness through action and volunteer at the Shelter.

Speak out on the importance of respecting animals.

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!

Pets On Parade
Come enjoy a fun filled Saturday in the sun at the riverfront at the Anderson Dance Pavilion with your two and four-legged friends at our annual fun day. Start the day by joining in on the 1 mile and new 5K fun walk/run. For those familiar with the fun walks/runs this will be a COLORFUL one! Have a great time and raise funds for the Shelter at the same time! Pick up your pledge packet and ask co-workers, friends, neighbors to sponsor you. Better yet, ask your co-workers or fellow animals lovers to form a team called a dog pack. Raise $500 or more as a team and you qualify as a dog pack and will enjoy the prizes and benefits that dog packs receive. Remember, you don't have to bring an animal to participate. After the fun walk/run sit back, relax, and enjoy our fun-filled pet contests, vendors and entertainment. Enter your talented pets in one of the many contests or enjoy the antics of the many participants. There will also be pet demonstrations, food, pet-related booths, and lots of great things to keep everyone in the family entertained. This year we have made some changes - first we are moving back to the Anderson Dance Pavilion at the riverfront - second we have moved to a Saturday - third is the addition of a 5K fun run full of color! We are sure you will have a doggone great time! To get your pledge packet stop in at the Shelter at 1015 Tri-View Avenue or your vets office starting in August.
