The Owensboro Humane Society is offering a proactive solution to the pet over-population crisis, which is the most critical issue facing pets and strays in the Owensboro and surrounding areas today. By promoting adoptions and spay/neuter efforts, the organization is actively addressing the problem. Lack of homes leads to thousands of cats and dogs being put to sleep at county shelters each year. Additionally, harsh environmental conditions, lack of food, and other factors contribute to the deaths of thousands of animals. The problem is out of control and requires immediate attention.

The great news is the Owensboro Humane Society offers low cost spay/neuter clinics twice each month.  Our operations are performed at our facility, by a highly qualified licensed veterinarian.  There is no transporting of your animal.

Register your dog/cat today!  Space is limited.  Please come down to the Humane Society during normal business hours to sign up your animal.

Advantages of having your pet spayed/neutered.
  • Spaying your female animals will help them live a longer, healthier life.  It helps to prevent uterine infections, and breast cancer.
  • Neutering your males also have great health benefits.  It helps to prevent testicular cancer.  It also prevents unwanted litters.
  • Neutering your male will help keep him at home.  Intact males will do almost anything to find a mate.
  • Neutering your male will give you a better behaved pet.  They can focus more on their family, then trying to find a mate.  Unneutered pets can become aggressive, and always want to mark their territory by spraying their urine.
  • Spaying/neutering your animal is a lot more cost effective.  The cost of surgery for your animal is a lot less then a litter of babies.
  • Spaying/neutering can help your community, by lowering the number of animals that are on the streets.  These animals can pray on wildlife, cause accidents, harm a child.. the list can go on and on.
  • Spaying/neutering helps fight the everlasting war of over-population.  Thousands of animals are killed each year due to these high numbers of over population.
