CCHS Awarded the Siletz Tribal “The Big Guys and Gals” Grant

CCHS is pleased to announce they have received a grant from Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund for $3,500 to help with the spay / neuter of large dogs.  The grant is for qualifying low income pet owners.

To spay or neuter your pet is an act of love.  With less unplanned or unwanted litters being born, it ensures that animals who are currently in shelters or rescues, will have a better chance at finding their forever home. 

An “intact” dog can produce 2 to 4 litters of puppies per year.  Large dogs average 7 puppies per litter.  While puppies are cute, they are also a lot of work, and create an expense that can tax an already stretched family budget. 

Most importantly, spay/neuter helps to protect the animal against possible health complications such as uterine infections, and breast or prostate cancer, which is all too common in “intact” animals. 

De-stress your life and make your dog happier and healthier by spaying or neutering your FUR-ever family member.  Call Central Coast Humane Society (541) 265-3719 and talk with one of our phone volunteers who are on duty 7 days a week!
