What's New From HSNB
Overpopulation of domestic animals is a crisis in our community. Unwanted, abandoned and homeless cats and dogs face starvation, abuse and death unless they are rescued into adoptive homes. Unfortunately, it seems that there are never enough homes for them all. We at HSNB encourage all pet owners to stop the cycle of neglect by spaying or neutering every one of their animals.
HSNB has partnered with the City of Vallejo to sell low-cost spay-neuter coupons for cats and dogs to Vallejo residents. A limited number of vouchers are provided to HSNB each month and are sold on a first-come first-served basis. Vallejo residents are limited to two vouchers per person and must show proof of residency.
The funding for this service comes through a grant from the city's Participatory Budgeting program. HSNB does not make any money from selling coupons or for administering the service; all proceeds go to paying local veterinarians for the surgeries.
Details to note:
- Our veterinary partners have a limited number of surgeries they can do each week, so there may be a wait for an appointment
- Once the coupon has been issued, the pet owner/guardian must call the veterinary office to make an appointment within 7 days, or the coupon will be voided and the deposit will not be refunded. (The actual operation can take place within a 45-day time frame after you purchase the coupon).
- Coupons will only be sold at the shelter, Tuesday through Sundays, 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. You will not be able to reserve or pay for coupons over the phone or by email.
