Pittsfield: Humane Society grant supports low-cost spay, neuter program
Dog owners who are Berkshire residents and are in financial need can have their dog spayed or neutered for $25 through the Berkshire Humane Society's "Be Hip & SNIP Your Dog" program. This program, funded with a grant from the Massachusetts Animal Coalition's License Plate Program, is available for 75 dogs and puppies three months and older.
The program is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants buy a $25 voucher at Berkshire Humane Society's main shelter at 214 Barker Road and then schedule the surgery with an approved veterinarian this year by May 31. The voucher must be submitted to the veterinarian the day of surgery.
Veterinarians taking part in the program are Allen Heights Veterinary Hospital, Pittsfield Veterinary Hospital and South Street Veterinary Services in Pittsfield; Greylock Animal Hospital and North County Veterinary Hospital in North Adams; and Valley Veterinary Services in Lee. More clinics may be announced later.
For more information, call the shelter at 413-447-7878, ext. 125.
