*Due to the limited capacity for spay/neuter services as a result of the COVID pandemic, LHS is focusing all spay/neuter efforts on dogs OVER 40 pounds and community cats from target populations. For pet cats and smaller dogs, you will need to schedule surgery with a local veterinarian or contact People For Animals directly for an appointment: https://www.pfaonline.org/
Spaying and Neutering allows animals to live a healthier and less stressful life. It also helps to control pet overpopulation by preventing unwanted litters of puppies and kittens. Animals receive services in Liberty Humane Society's mobile surgical clinic or are shuttled to People For Animals or to another spay/neuter provider for care.
Subsidies for Residents of Jersey City and Hoboken
Residents of Jersey City and Hoboken can apply for $10 spay/neuter services for their pet dogs over 40 pounds, and community cats they care for.
Liberty Humane Society operates on the honor system. Our subsidized programs are funded by donations and are meant solely for individuals who truly cannot afford to have their pets spayed or neutered, and reside in one of our targeted areas. If you can afford to bring your pet to a regular veterinary clinic for spay/neuter, please make
that choice. By doing so our financial resources will not be wasted. This program is not for rescue or adoption groups.

*Community cats are feral or friendly cats that you care for and who live outdoors. All Community Cats will receive vaccinations and an eartip for visual identification that they have been sterilized.
By accessing these subsidized programs you agree to uphold LHS's Dog Owner Code of Conduct and/or Community Cat Best Practices. You also agree to complete each application completely and truthfully, to follow program instructions, and to treat all staff and program participants with respect.
We greatly appreciate your interest in helping local animals, but repeated failure to comply with these instructions will result in your removal from the program.
