Dr. Alan Hallman has offered the Payson Humane Society his valued professional service to spay or neuter some of our shelter animals. In past summers, when he has had a veterinary intern with him, he has provided many free spay/neuters services for the shelter animals. This year he has generously offered us $5,000 worth of spay/neuters for our adopted animals.
Arizona state law requires all adopted shelter animals to be sterilized before they leave the shelter unless they are too young. A major expense of our shelter operations is our spay/neuter fees.
When we adopt an unsterilized animal, we charge $25 over the adoption fee. A certificate is given to the adopter to give to the local veterinarian. The veterinarian returns the certificate to the Payson Humane Society with the charges.
We only charge $25 toward the surgery, therefore we are most grateful for all the help from our local veterinarians.
