Have an “oops” litter?

by | Mar 20, 2023

Have an “oops” litter? Pope Memorial Humane Society can help. Make this litter your pet’s last.

Through our Moms and Toms Program, PMHS offers free spay surgery for any female cat or dog whose offspring is surrendered to us to be adopted out through our adoption program. If dad resides in the same home, we’ll neuter him too. Working together, we will help prevent future unplanned litters.

The program is available to pet owners residing in any communities that PMHS serves whose resident pet is pregnant or has recently had a litter of kittens or puppies. If possible, the pet owner is asked to foster the kittens or puppies until they are old enough and healthy enough (approximately 10-12 weeks) to be spayed/neutered and ready for adoption. If fostering in the home is not possible, PMHS will arrange a foster home.

Owners agree to relinquish ALL kittens/puppies to the shelter. PMHS will vaccinate the kittens/puppies to keep them healthy, treat them for worms and fleas, spay/neuter them when old enough, microchip them, and then adopt them into loving homes. After they are spayed/neutered, Mom (and Dad) will be returned to the owner free of charge.
