Most animal welfare experts agree: spay/neuter is the most effective method to curb the pet over population problem. Buncombe County recognizes and values the positive impact spay/neuter has on eradicating pet over population.
Although the Humane Alliance Spay/Neuter clinic offers extremely affordable surgery rates, some pet owners lack the financial means to have their pets spayed/neutered.
The Buncombe County Animal Shelter is able to provide a Spay/Neuter voucher that makes the cost only $20 for a cat and $35 for a dog through the Humane Alliance Spay/Neuter Clinic – including a rabies shot! There are no income guidelines, you just have to be a resident of Buncombe County.
For more information on how to obtain this voucher, please call the Buncombe County Animal Shelter at (828) 250-6430.
