Community Spay/Neuter program

BARL is committed to its Community Outreach Spay/Neuter program. The program assists people with discounted spay/neuter surgeries for their pets. In order to qualify for the program, people must be on a government assistance program (Medicare, Medicaid, Welfare, Disability, etc.), and be a resident of Copiah, Franklin or Lincoln County. Discounted spay/neuter vouchers are also offered to school workers. Plus Law Enforcement qualify for vouchers during Law Enforcement Appreciation Week. BARL provides vouchers for special hardship cases such as people who have lost their home or had a major medical expense. Vouchers are available at the following veterinary offices in Copiah and Lincoln counties: Animal Health Center, Animal Medical Center, and Copiah Animal Hospital. In 2023 we financially assisted in the spay/neuter of 682 owned or community animals.

Since 2019 BARL has received funding from the Pets for the Elderly Foundation to sponsor our PAWS (Placing Animals With Seniors) program. This program provides senior adults discounted adoption fees on BARL dogs and cats. Seniors are able to adopt a cat for $35 or a dog for $50. The program has been very well received and is a win-win for seniors adults and shelter animals.

BARL began a Return to Home program in 2023, which is being continued in 2024. The focus of the program is to decrease intake to the shelter by helping pets get back home. We often take in strays that have collars without ID tags. An ID tag would immediately get that pet back to its owner. BARL received a grant to kick-off this program. The grant provided funds to purchase a tag engraving machine, ID tags, collars and microchips. The engraver is used at the Adoption Center. All adopted dogs leave us with a collar and ID tag. Plus, because the engraver is portable we take it to festivals where we give out free ID tags and collars.

BARL also held two discount microchip clinics in 2023. One clinic also included discount rabies vaccinations.

All of these efforts are to help pets Return to Home.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

●BARL's goals are as follows:
… Promote spay and neuter throughout three counties.
… Encourage the adoption of rescued animals.
… Educate the public regarding responsible pet ownership and the humane treatment of animals.

BARL will continue to focus on its goals of spay/neuter, adoption and humane education.

We continue to build upon our fund-raisers to generate more funds for animal care, transport and programs such as low-cost community spay/neuter. We also solicit funds from grantors in hopes to build on these programs even more.

2022:
This year was a challenge. Our transport numbers were down, which seemed to be a trend around the country. Due to fewer animals being transferred out, we were unable to intake as many animals as previous years.

Intake - 1,154
Adoptions - 732
Returned to owner - 10
Transported - 494
Spayed/Neutered Community Animals - We are still receiving invoices from vet clinics. We anticipate this number to be around 450.

2021:
Intake - 1,485
Adoptions - 798
Returned to owner - 25
Transported - 685
Spayed/Neutered Community Animals - 253

Note: We take in 80% of the animals from the City of Brookhaven's animal shelter, in addition to strays and owner surrenders from a three county area. We do take in animals from other areas when we have space.


2020 was a difficult year due to Covid restrictions; however, our adoption and transport numbers stayed steady.

2020:
Intake – 1,405
Adoptions – 778
Returned to owner – 15
Transported – 617

Spayed/Neutered over 240 community and owned animals

Note: We take in 80% of the animals from the City of Brookhaven's animal shelter, in addition to strays and owner surrenders from a three county area.
