The Humane Society of Putnam County provides a limited number of spay/neuter vouchers to residents of Putnam County each month that are worth $100 to offset the cost of having a dog or cat spayed or neutered.

These vouchers also pay up to $20 for a rabies vaccination.

Since Jan. 1, 2021, the Humane Society has paid $10,057 to assist pet owners in preventing unwanted kittens or puppies. With these funds, 69 cats and 24 dogs were spayed or neutered.

Spay/neuter vouchers will be distributed again at 10 a.m. Tuesday, July 2 at Rescued Treasures Thrift Store, 1021 Indianapolis Rd.

The Humane Society of Putnam County also operates a free TNR program (trap, neuter, release) to residents of Putnam County aimed at reducing the number of feral kittens being born in the county. So far this year, 20 feral cats have been spayed or neutered.

Contact Don Williams at Rescued Treasures for more information.

Rescued Treasures is a thrift store run by The Humane Society of Putnam County. Proceeds from the store support these two programs as well as provide financial support to the Animal Shelter.

The Animal Care and Control Shelter is a unique public/private partnership between Putnam County and the Humane Society of Putnam County

  • How many vouchers will be given out this time? Every time I go to try and get one for my cat, they are already all given out, or there's a huge line before the start time.
