Portsmouth Pet Project

In 2016 and 2017, we funded approximately 500 spay/neuter surgeries and provided wellness services for about 400 additional cats and dogs in Portsmouth. Thank you Virginia Beach SPCA, Portsmouth Humane Society, and Greenbrier Animal Care Center for being partners in this initiative, and thank you PetSmart Charities® for making this project possible!

Financial assistance under the Portsmouth Pet Project has ended, but we are still offering limited spay/neuter financial assistance for Hampton Roads residents. Call (757)456-1354 or click here to request an appointment.


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.

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.
