Pet-tacular New Year
Make it a pet-tacular new year for Fido, Fluffy and all your pets. Have a great and healthy 2015!

New Year's resolutions for pet owners:

1. Take your pet to a veterinarian at least once a year for exams and vaccinations.
2. Be consistent with health care. Do year-round, monthly heartworm preventative.
3. ID your pet, whether it be a tag or a microchip.
4. Give your pet love! They get bored and destructive without attention.
5. Check your pet's hygiene. Limit fat, exercise and groom regularly, limit treats.
6. Spay and neuter your pet. It decreases overpopulation and has health benefits.
7. Make sure collars fit properly, check often. Two fingers need to fit underneath.
8. Pet proof your house. Keep poisons, plants, electrical cords out of reach.
9. Learn a fun fact about your pet's breed. Research traits before adopting it.
10. Donate money or items to our Shelter.

Prevent A Litter Month
Please help prevent a litter, stop pet overpopulation and pet homelessness - spay and neuter your pets! Most people see the benefit of spaying a female pet - avoiding unwanted litters. There are also many medical and behavioral benefits. Neutered pets are healthier! Neutered pets are more content and better behaved! Neutering is a relatively safe and painless operation. By neutering your pet you enhance its chance of living a long healthy life and make your pet a more content family member!

Call or stop by the Shelter for information on our Spay/Neuter Assistance Programs that can financially help you with these costs. Our Spay The Mom Cat Program will pay 100% of the spay cost!

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.
