In 2021 OPH sponsored the spay & neuter of 512 community pets and we have a goal to sponsor at least 550 surgeries in 2022. Working with our clinic partners, OPH can sponsor the spay or neuter surgery for a pet for just under $50. The OPH-sponsored SPAY DAYS have huge impact on the surrounding community and massively reduce shelter intake. The result is lower euthanasia rates. One spay day can prevent the births of more than 250,000 animals.
With your help, we can fight the pet overpopulation crisis. Each year, thousands of adoptable, loyal, loving companion animals are euthanized due to lack of resources. It doesn't have to be that way. Let's address the problem at its source and help more dogs and cats get spayed and neutered.
Each pet longs for a chance to be loved (many have never experienced it). Each wants to live. What happens when there is no where to put an animal, when the shelter is full, adopters are scarce, and the rescues are bursting at the seems? The staff have no choice but to euthanize. This is not an acceptable solution! It keeps many of us up at night. Let's really think about this and ask ourselves, what choice do they have?
While there are many contributing factors, spay and neuter has proven to be the most effective solution to the problem of pet overpopulation. One cat or dog and their offspring can produce hundreds of thousands of animals in just 6 years.Donate
