Spay/Neuter

iStock_000008153874SmallGRR provides spay/neuter services to the community in order to:

(1) stabilize populations of homeless cats and dogs;
(2) reduce the numbers of cats and dogs entering animal shelters;
(3) reduce the numbers of cats and dogs killed at animal shelters.

GRR spays or neuters any dog or cat pulled from a shelter before the animal is fostered/adopted.

Also, any lower income person who gets GRR help with veterinary care for a pet must have all pets in their home spayed/neutered.  That requirement is intended to motivate people who might otherwise not have had their pets spayed/neutered.

http://www.dreamstime.com/-image9237361The state of Delaware has an excellent spay/neuter program for people receiving certain forms of public assistance.   An eligible person may receive 3 spay/neuter certificates every year.  If there are more than 3 pets, GRR will provide assistance with spay/neuter of the rest of the pets. 

Spay/neuter of outdoor community cats is also very important.  There are a number of Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) groups in Delaware that provide spay/neuter for colonies of stray/feral cats.  In cases where a colony caretaker of limited income asks GRR for help with spay/neuter, we will coordinate with TNR groups and provide assistance as needed.
