Homeless Animals Relief Project

Mission

Our mission is to provide free or very low-cost animal birth control surgery to pets living with the poor, and feral cats. We provide a rabies vaccination to every animal we fix, and we offer free or extremely low-cost care for basic injuries or illnesses. We will provide free euthanasia to suffering animals when recommended by the veterinarian. We currently focus on cats due to their explosive population growth, and because there are a number of well-funded dog rescues in the Mid-South improving the lives of unwanted or homeless canines. We turn away no one because of inability to pay; getting the pet fixed is our priority. We are proud to provide care to pets and feral cats who likely would never otherwise see a veterinarian or receive professional care in their lives.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Spay/Neuter of cats living with the poor

Free or very low cost birth control surgery is provided to pets living with low-income people. Most qualify because they are receiving public assistance, but others have special financial circumstances. Each case is evaluatated individually, and we err on the side of benefiting the animal and the community by offering spay/neuter to reduce animal overpopulation, increase the likelihood that the pet will be able to remain in the home, and improve our community's health.

Population(s) Served

We administer a 3-year rabies vaccine to every cat we fix, if they are at least 3 months old. This improves community health and protects the cat against this rare but deadly disease.

Population(s) Served

Our veterinarians will provide free or very low-cost professional care to sick or injured cats living with the poor. Any injured or sick cat can be evaluated by our veterinarian for free, or a low-copay for qualified low-income owners. We will cover all or most the cost, much of which will be donated by the vet, if the cat is expected to survive the injury or illness. If the vet feels the cat is suffering and humane euthanasia would be the most compassionate choice, Homeless Animals Relief Project will cover that cost. If the cat survives, we do require spay/neuter before the cat is discharged to the owner. We do ask owners to pay what they can.
