Shelter Survey to obtain spay neuter funding!

Help us to obtain much needed spay neuter funding for West Virginia by having your shelter or animal control facility fill out this easy one page survey.  We need to be able to provide data to support our argument for this necessary funding.  This can be used for grant writing to assist with funding for the newly formed WV Spay Neuter Assistance Fund which will be administered through the WV Dept. of Agric.

SNAP WV Success Story!

The Spay Neuter Assistance Program of WV was established to provide financial aid to qualified low income citizens of WV to have their pets sterilized. SNAP-WV had received $25,000 in seed money from a member of the West Virginia House of Delegates to begin the program. This is a matching grant program for 501c3 designated humane groups in WV that already have programs providing this type of financial aid. We felt this would have the effect of encouraging and inspiring these groups as they were working to raise funding to provide financial aid to the people in their areas. An application and approval process for these groups was put into place late in 2009.

Since the program’s inception in Nov. of 2009 through 2011, 15 matching grants were awarded.  A total of 1422 cats and dogs were sterilized around the state. Positive feedback was received from the funded groups along with valuable statistics. The numbers of animals not being born to add to the already over burdened animal sheltering system is tremendous. This is a great savings of lives and taxpayer money.

The groups have shared with us stories and comments from the citizens they have been able to help using this funding. All of the participating veterinarians have worked with these groups by giving them special pricing for low income citizens. This is good public relations for the groups, the veterinarians, the state and SNAP-WV. The statistics we have received will be invaluable for us to present to our legislators as we work to obtain more public funding.

We need to be able to get the word out to more people about the positive effects of spay and neuter programs. We feel that the best way to disseminate this information would be through advertising of some form. This is presently in the planning stages. SNAP-WV and the humane groups have accomplished a tremendous effect on the numbers of animals sterilized with the $25,000 we were given.  We can do a great deal more to save tax payer money by continuing the program.

Dollars to spay/neuter your pet!

We, at Mountain View Humane, have obtained some aid money to help the animals in WV.   We currently have $3,700 in aid money that can be used to help with the fixes for animals of poverty level owners, with no geographic limits.  We are trying to get the residents of the 3 counties that we serve with our FREE transport in WV (Mercer, Monroe, Summers) to take advantage of this opportunity!

In February we are participating in the Beat the Heat cat blitz sponsored by PetSmart, and will be targeting the WV market for this low cost opportunity. Female cats will be $20, males will be at our regular price ($25 to $45 depending on the situation).

Then, in August we have a pit bull blitz that can also benefit the owners in WV.
