We are holding a Community Cat Chat in Portsmouth on October 15th and 16th for National Feral Cat Day! If you want to chat about your community cats, please call 901-443-CATS.  For pet food assistance for community cats, contact Portsmouth Humane Society or visit them during their normal business hours.

One of Animal Resources of Tidewater’s (ART) goals is to end unnecessary killing of healthy and treatable animals in our shelters. Spaying/neutering is one of several important programs needed to lower shelter intake and save lives. SpayHR was founded by ART with the mission of providing free or discounted spay/neuter to those who need it. SpayHR also endorses Trap-Neuter-and-Return (TNR) as an effective, compassionate 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.

In 2016, Animal Resources of Tidewater’s spay/neuter program, SpayHR,  will provide services/funding for the Portsmouth Pet Project. If you do NOT live in Portsmouth Pet Project target neighborhoods please contact one of the low cost quality spay/neuter service providers in our Hampton Roads areaLow Cost Spay/Neuter Clinics
