One of ART’s goals is to end unnecessary killing of pets in shelters. Spaying/neutering is one important step needed to lower shelter intake. SpayHR was founded by ART to go into low income neighborhoods in Norfolk and offer free or discounted spay neuter to those who need it. SpayHR also endorses the Trap-Neuter-and-Return (TNR) of free-roaming cats as an effective measure to humanely reduce the number of community cats.
How can you help SpayHR?
Tell your friends, family, and neighbors about the benefits and low cost of spaying and neutering pets! Help us get the word out by passing out informational materials or by donating to our general fund.
Also, please consider donating the purchase of a cat trap. These traps are used to humanely trap community cats so that they can be spayed or neutered and vaccinated before being returned to their outside home, where caretakers provide food and water. Please consider donating a humane trap.
