Spay/Neuter Fund

Our spay/neuter program has been in place since December of 2005. Frustrated with the overpopulation epidemic in our small town, and growing tired of simply euthanizing unwanted animals year after year, we realized that we needed to start at the grassroots level in order to make a change in the intake and euthanasia rates at our local shelter.

Campaign Details

Our spay/neuter program has been in place since December of 2005. Frustrated with the overpopulation epidemic in our small town, and growing tired of simply euthanizing unwanted animals year after year, we realized that we needed to start at the grassroots level in order to make a change in the intake and euthanasia rates at our local shelter.

Since that time, we have issued over 4,000 spay/neuter vouchers to help local citizens get their pets fixed. By the end of 2015, our fund was depleted and we were forced to stop altering pets through the program, and were only able to do so through the animal shelter, which heavily taxed the humane society's budget. We desperately needed to revive this program so that the number of unwanted animals born in our community would continue to decrease. At this time, the program is up and running, but funding is beginning to get low so we need to raise some much-needed funds to keep the program afloat.  

Our five year goal is to decrease the intake and euthanasia rates by 10% each year, in comparison to the previous year. Over a five year period, this would change our intake from 772 animals each year to 455. Total decrease over the five-year term would be 41%.

We hope to raise $2,000 on Giving Tuesday (November 27th) to help pet owners have their pets fixed to decrease intake at our shelter. You can donate on our website at www.andersonhumane.org, donate here via credit or debit card, or mail a check or money order to P.O. Box 448, Lawrenceburg 40342.

HSUS Pet Overpopulation Estimates

  • Number of cats and dogs euthanized by shelters each year: 3–4 million
  • In seven years, one female cat and her offspring can theoretically produce 420,000 cats.
