SPAY AND NEUTER ASSISTANCE
The Humane Society of Putnam County will be offering spay/neuter vouchers at the Rescued Treasures retail store for two animals per household per year. These vouchers will cover up to $100 of the cost to spay or neuter a cat or a dog, plus $20 towards rabies vaccination if needed as well. This program is only available to Putnam County residents, valid ID required. A list of participating veterinarians will be provided upon distribution of the vouchers. Vouchers can be obtained at the Rescued Treasures thrift store, on the first day of each month. Visit our Contact Us page to locate the Rescued Treasures Thrift Store and the respective contact information.
These vouchers are made possible by the generous donations, dedicated volunteers and loyal customers associated with Rescued Treasures and the Humane Society of Putnam County. Please consider contributing your time, talent or treasure to help us continue to offer these programs to aid pet owners.
COMMUNITY & FERAL CAT TNR
The Humane Society of Putnam County offers vouchers for community and feral cats (not house cats). The vouchers cover 100% of the cost for spay/neuter, 3-year rabies vaccine, flea medicine and ear tip at the Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic at 409 N. Green, Brownsburg, IN.
We realize that trapping feral cats can be tricky, but it is vital in aiding to control the pet population to spay/neuter these animals and we appreciate the support of the humans in the community helping these kitties in our community. Once fixed, the ear tip makes it easily identifiable that an animal has already been altered, so we can focus on the TNR of the cats still intact..
Please see Don Williams at Rescued Treasures store (next to Goodwill) on Fridays to obtain more information or vouchers for feral & community cats in your neighborhood.
The Humane Society of Putnam County provides low cost micro-chipping services for Putnam County residents. The outpatient procedure costs $15 per pet at the animal shelter located at 4700 E. State Rd. 240 in Greencastle.
Micro-chipping is a popular technology used to identify unclaimed pets. The microchip, a tiny “pet ID” transponder the size of a grain of rice, is injected beneath the surface of the animal’s skin. When scanned by a microchip scanner, the chip emits a low radio frequency, transmitting the animal’s ID code to identify the owner’s contact information.
Implanting a microchip is a simple procedure that does not require anesthesia. Microchips are not a GPS device.
Registration: When an animal is micro-chipped with the Humane Society of Putnam County, the HSPC provides free registration to ensure the chip is registered in the national database.
