For those who live outside Vinita – but within shouting distance (see list below), PAAS has a program to help low income individuals get their pets spayed/neutered (fixed).
Thanks to the support of the Flint Family Foundation and PetSmart Charities, pet owners can have 2 pets fixed. The cost is $10.00 per animal.
If you live in the Bernice, Disney, Ketchum, Langley, Cleora, Welch, Pryor, Miami, Fairland, Afton or Bluejacket area – that works.
To qualify you must show proof of income. Once you qualify you pay only $10 for each animal. Spay/Neuter services are provided by area veterinarians.
Spay/Neuter is the only effective way to control pet overpopulation in our area.
An unspayed cat can have three litters with a minimum of 12 kittens the first year. By 2021 (four years), the number will be in excess of 2,000.
An unspayed female dog will have a minimum of 16 offspring the first year and over 512 by the year 2021.
You do the math – – it stops with you as the pet owner.
If you, or someone you know, qualifies please call: Peaceful Animal Adoption Shelter (PAAS) Monday thru Friday, 10 – 3. Phone number is: (918) 256-7227.
