Ongoing spay/neuter voucher program:

We are a small private rescue and do not have a medical facility to do any medical procedures.

Covid Pandemic and losing one of the veterinarian offices in Ashe County have brought some changes (hopefully temporary) to our low-cost spay/neuter program.

Due to the retirement of Dr. Beckworth in December of 2021 we have shifted our low cost spay and neuter program to Twin Oaks Vet Office in Sparta. Unfortunately, Twin Oaks is already overwhelmed with new patients and has limited us to only taking cats with the vouchers. The low cost spay/neuter voucher for cats only are $50 spay (female) and $30 neuter (male) that can only be used at Twin Oaks Vet Hospital.

If you are interested in purchasing a voucher from us you will need to make an appointment with Twin Oaks. (Last time we checked first available appointment is 6 months away). You can then contact us and we will give you instructions of the information we need about your cat in order us to initiate a voucher and how to pay.

To get an appointment sooner for your cat, you may want to check with Watauga Humane Society to see if the are starting up their low-cost Spay/Neuter program anytime soon.
