The Martinsville-Henry County SPCA announced that Banfield Foundation is supporting its 2024 community spay/neuter initiative “Critters Without Litters.” As part of the agency’s 50th anniversary plans, it will subsidize the spay/neuter of 500 animals during 2024 for low-income residents of Martinsville and Henry County.
The $10,000 grant will be used to purchase some of the necessary supplies for each spay or neuter procedure. Low-income community residents will only have to pay $20 per surgery, with the remaining costs covered by the Critters Without Litters campaign. Every animal spayed or neutered by the SPCA receives a rabies vaccine and a microchip.
“Almost 90% of our clients qualify for low-income pricing and depend on us for spay/neuter services. It is our goal to help encourage the health and well-being of beloved pets within the community whose families may not be able to afford standard costs but dearly love their animals,” said Catherine Gupton, executive director of the SPCA.
