FELINE SPAY & NEUTER
The Butler County Humane Society does not have a veterinarian on staff at our facility, and due to this cannot perform low cost dog and cat spaying and neutering for the public on a daily basis.
However, thanks to our friends at Frankie’s Friends and Animal Friends, we are able to offer a low-cost feline clinic for stray or owned cats. The cost varies per cat and includes a rabies shot. The FVRCP (distemper) vaccine and the FELV/FIV combo test is available at an additional charge. For current pricing and schedule information please give us a call at 724-789-1150!
Once we have a date that we can schedule you for, you will be contacted by a member of staff to give you that information. All clinic customers will be required to fill out paper work at the shelter and pre-pay prior to the clinic date. Space is limited for each month, and there is a waiting list. To secure a space on the waiting list, please call into the Butler County Humane Society at 724-789-1150.
We perform microchipping on cats and dogs. All of the animals at the Butler County Humane Society are already microchipped at the time of adoption.
If you would like to have a pet microchipped the fee is $25.00, which provides free registration for 1 yr to 24Petwatch. After the first year, the yearly renewal fee is $9.95 or $39.95 for a lifetime registration. This also qualifies your dog to be able to get a lifetime dog license.
The Butler County Humane Society offers low cost rabies and microchip clinics to community members once a month, January through October. Thanks to the generous support of local veterinarians, we are able to provide rabies shots at these clinics for $10 per vaccination. If you bring the records of your dog or cat’s last rabies vaccination, you may be eligible to receive the three year vaccine rather than the one year vaccine. There is no additional charge for the three year vaccine.
Microchips are available during the rabies clinics hosted at the BCHS, and are a wonderful tool in helping to reunite lost pets with their owners. Microchipping takes the same amount of time as a regular vaccine, and feels similar to any other shot. Roughly the size of a grain of rice, the microchip is placed under your dog or cat’s skin in their upper back. These chips contain a number that, once scanned, will be able to share the owner’s information with animal shelters, dog officers, and veterinary offices. These chips regularly help lost dogs and cats find their way home, and all Butler County Humane Society shelter pets are automatically chipped before they are adopted. If you can’t make it to one of our low cost clinics and would still like to get your current pet chipped, microchips are always available at our shelter for a walk-in charge of $25. Please be advised that all pets coming to be microchipped – as a walk in or at a clinic – must have a current rabies vaccination certificate on hand to receive their chip. Rabies tags will not suffice on their own, and we unfortunately cannot chip any pet without having a rabies certificate present.
