PETS Low Cost Spay & Neuter Satellite Clinic

PETS Clinic comes to the shelter twice monthly for scheduled low cost spays and neuters. We also offer a walk-in clinic at that time for low cost preventatives including vaccinations, dewormers, heart worm and feline leukemia testing and flea and tick preventatives. We also offer free nail trims at that time.

Charting impact

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

The Humane Society of Young County is working to stop the overpopulation problem our community faces though education and providing access to low-cost spays and neuters through the P.E.T.S. Clinic hosted at our facility monthly.
HSYC promotes the adoption of behaviorally and medically sound pets from our shelter. Each pet adopted is up-to-date with all age appropriate vaccinations, spayed/neutered, microchipped, dewormed and tested for heartworms or Felv/FIV.
Through education and our hosting of the P.E.T.S. Clinic we also hope to stem the spread of diseases from pet to pet and from pet to humans through vaccinations for parvo, distemper, feline upper respiratory infections, and Rabies.
HSYC strives to return owned stray animals to their homes. By providing access to low-cost microchipping, we hope to make it easier for families to reconnect with their pets when they go missing.

HSYC provides monthly access to the P.E.T.S. Low-Cost Spay and Neuter Clinic for lower cost vet care including vaccinations, testing, and heartworm, flea, and tick preventatives. Grants are available for those with government assistance and for those with feral or free-roaming cats providing even lower costs for surgery.
HSYC provides easy and affordable access to puppy and kitten booster vaccinations and microchipping.
The staff and board of HSYC, along with members of the city government, are working on improvements to the city ordinances pertaining to dogs and cats to further curb dogs running-at-large, the chance for dog bites to the public, and other nuisances.
The staff and board of HSYC attend training seminars and other educational trainings to stay up-to-date on all aspects of sheltering and animal care. HSYC staff members have certifications in Fear-free Handling, Euthanasia protocols, and Compassion Fatigue as well as training in positive reinforcement training techniques, behavioral evaluations, and behavioral modification.

How we listen

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Seeking feedback from people served makes programs more responsive and effective. Here’s how this organization is listening.

done We shared information about our current feedback practices.
  • Who are the people you serve with your mission?

    We serve all the people of our community. We serve pet owners through intake of strays and surrenders that can no longer be cared for properly. We give support to owners who are dealing with behavioral or financial issues and struggling to keep their pets. We offer assistance as we are able through training advice and referrals, by providing pet food to help through a financial crises with their pets, and we host a low cost spay/neuter and preventative care clinic monthly with financial assistance available to those who qualify. We also serve the community members that may not be pet owners by taking in strays from the streets. This helps keep nuisance calls down, helps keep people safer from animals that may be aggressive, and helps cut down on the transmission of diseases like rabies.

  • How is your organization collecting feedback from the people you serve?

    watch all written reviews and evaluate our performance to adjust when needed,

  • How is your organization using feedback from the people you serve?

    To identify and remedy poor client service experiences, To identify bright spots and enhance positive service experiences, To make fundamental changes to our programs and/or operations, To inform the development of new programs/projects, To identify where we are less inclusive or equitable across demographic groups, To strengthen relationships with the people we serve, To understand people's needs and how we can help them achieve their goals,

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    We are currently working with city officials to update city animal ordinances to require more responsible pet ownership. Community complaints have been increasing due to animals allowed to run-at-large in the city limits. By working with our city government to update ordinances, we hope to stop those owners who have animals picked up repeatedly due to running loose. We see this as a win for the community and the pet as well. We will continue to make changes that will benefit our community.
