At Animal Humane Society, we understand the importance of spay/neuter. It is only with incredible spay/neuter efforts that we’ll reduce the dramatic number of animals that need homes in the state of Minnesota.
Our primary efforts in spay/neuter are to sterilize each dog, cat, and rabbit before it is placed on our adoption floors.
And, in the spring of 2011, Kindest Cut, in partnership with Animal Humane Society, began offering low-cost spay/neuter services to qualified low-income families.
Kindest Cut is a fully equipped mobile surgical unit, led by licensed Veterinarian Dr. Meghann Kruck, that travels to various Minneapolis/St. Paul locations to offer high quality, low cost spay/neuter pet surgery. Services are directed to people of limited means and to animal rescue groups in need of these surgeries.
Animal Humane Society's generous donors have funded this effort, realizing the importance of preventing unwanted pet litters. Every day, 70,000 puppies and kittens are born in the United States. More than 60% of them are unwanted and will be abandoned, oftentimes brought to a shelter or rescue organization. Kindest Cut and Animal Humane Society believe animals in our community deserve better.
For more than a decade Animal Humane Society has sterilized all cats, dogs, rabbits and ferrets prior to adoption. Now, through this partnership with Kindest Cut, it is expected that an additional 10,000 spay/neuter surgeries will be provided in our local communities through the mobile surgical unit.
On-site clinic at Animal Humane Society coming soon...
The second phase of launching the Kindest Cut service for the public is to open an affordable spay/neuter clinic at Animal Humane Society's Golden Valley site. The goal is to open the clinic within the next year and sterilize an additional 10,000 animals.
Animal Humane Society is currently raising funds to build the clinic. Consider making a donation today to help us provide 20,000 spay/neuter surgeries for pets of people in need.
