Caring pet owners want their dogs and cats to have long happy lives.
They don’t want litter after litter of puppies or kittens wearing down their mama.
They don’t want the stress of finding decent, reliable, forever homes for the babies.
They don’t want their male pet marking or running off whenever a female is in heat…
and they can sense it from as far away as two miles!
Loving, responsible owners know that spaying or neutering is the best choice for their pets,
but sometimes the cost of the surgery is far beyond their ability to pay.
That’s why Fixing to Help was formed in the fall of 2018 - to serve low-income pet families residing in Central New York.
Our mission is to make spay and neuter services more accessible by sharing information and offering financial assistance
to low-income pet owners who want only the best for their dogs and cats.
In order to do so, we must follow eligibility guidelines to be sure our services reach those with the greatest need.
All applicants must meet the following requirements:
HAVE A TOTAL GROSS HOUSEHOLD INCOME THAT DOES NOT EXCEED A SPECIFIED AMOUNT
All dog owners must now pay a $20 refundable deposit one full week before their dog's appointment. If the deposit is not received within the week, SANS will cancel the appointment and fill the time slot with the next waiting dog.
If the dog shows up for surgery, the $20 will be refunded to the owner at checkout. Or if the owner wishes, the deposit can be used as payment for any of the options such as microchip, extra treatment, or a post-op cone. Fixing to Help will pay for the entire surgery package and take-home meds as promised.
Please give us a call at 315-729-8691 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We understand how important your pet is to you and your family and we would love to hear from you!
If you and your pet are eligible for our services, then a surgical appointment can be scheduled with one of our collaborating clinics.
Once Fixing to Help contacts the clinic with the approval and confirms this with the pet owner, our job is done.
The rest is up to you!
You are expected to:
· Make the appointment at your convenience.
· Provide the clinic with 24-hour prior notice if you must cancel the appointment.
· Transport your pet to and from the appointment.
· Provide the clinic with verification of your financial eligibility at the time of the appointment.
· Follow post-operative directions to ensure your pet’s recovery.
