Spay/Neuter Assistance Program – Starting in December 2016!

The Broome County Humane Society will be partnering with Shelter Outreach Services (S.O.S.) to provide affordable spay/neuter and vaccination services for the companion animals in our community.

The Low Cost Spay/Neuter clinics are intended for area residents who cannot afford the spay/neuter fees charged at their veterinarian’s office due to financial hardship.

IMPORTANT: This program is NOT to replace your annual/general/wellness/sick veterinary care. You should ALWAYS have a veterinarian for your pet(s) and see them annually (or as needed/recommended).

Each animal receives a physical examination, spay or neuter surgery under anesthetic, and, if needed, rabies and/or distemper vaccinations.

Pet overpopulation and animal homelessness is a community responsibility. Please help by spaying and neutering your pet!

You can  complete an application by clicking the link  below or you may pick one up at The Humane Society.

Please complete the application in full, and submit it online:
