St. Tammany Humane Society Fixes Record Number of Cats
Covington, LA – Friday, January 15th marked a record for the St. Tammany Humane Society and their fight to end homeless animals in our community. The shelter hosts two “Spay Days” each year, in which members of the community are able to spay or neuter both domesticated or feral cats for a low cost of $10! The veterinary clinic located at the shelter fixed 156 cats in just one business day, stopping the birth of hundreds of litters of kittens for 2016.
Most of us are aware that we, like most of the nation, suffer from pet overpopulation. Many of us wish to do the right thing by spaying or neutering not only our own animals, but many of the strays that are in our area as well. The problem: we can’t always afford to do so. Spay Day is a way to ensure that members of our community CAN afford to do the right thing.
The St. Tammany Humane Society would like to extend a thank you to the staff and volunteers who make these Spay Days possible. Without the handwork and dedication of our vets, vet techs and volunteers we would not be able to continue our no-kill vision. The next Spay Day will take place sometime this Fall, right before mating season. If you would like more information on Spay Days or the other programs offered by the St. Tammany Humane Society, please visit their website at www.StHumane.org.
The St. Tammany Humane Society is one of Louisiana’s largest non-profit, no-kill animal welfare organizations and shelters. Since 1953, the St. Tammany Humane Society has been serving the unwanted, neglected, abandoned, and abused animals of the gulf coast region. St. Tammany Humane Society is an independent, non-governmental shelter that offers veterinary care, fostering, and adoption services. We rely solely on the support of caring people like you to fund programs and services that profoundly benefit the animals of our community. Join us in our mission to save every adoptable pet in St. Tammany Humane Society and help us reach the goal of No More Homeless Pets while becoming a no-kill Parish.
