STOP Spay/Neuter Program

Stop the Overpopulation of Pets

Shelter euthanasia is the #1 killer of companion animals. The Hutchinson Animal Shelter takes in approximately 2,000 stray and owner surrendered animals each year.

Many cats and dogs that die because of pet overpopulation, could have made wonderful pets.

The STOP Program has assisted thousands of Reno County residents obtain low-cost, quality spay/neuter services. We believe that spay/neuter services should be financially accessible for everyone with a cat or dog who might not otherwise be able to spay/neuter their pets.

The STOP Program is solely funded by memberships, donations, grants and co-pays that CFPI has been able to secure. If you would like to make a financial contribution to this service, click Join Us and Donate and answer the prompts. It's that easy!

If you have a friend, family member, or neighbor with unaltered pets that may need financial assistance for spay/neuter services, please encourage them to contact us for more information!
