Spay and Neuter Services

Every day, 70,000 puppies and kittens are born in the U.S., resulting in a lack of homes for all of these animals. Because of these dramatic birth rates, many loving animals face having their lives cut short in animal shelters due to a lack of space. The pets that don’t make it into the shelter are left to fend for themselves outdoors. The suffering that these animals endure can end by spaying and neutering pets, which helps to reduce pet overpopulation. We can make a difference in these startling numbers by starting in our community.

Total number of animals treated as of June 1st, 2023.

Rhoda’s Fund 682 cats

Pappa’s Pups 382 dogs

TNR 2,052

Rhoda’s Fund and Papa’s Pups

Rhoda’s Fund (cats) and Papa’s Pets (dogs) are two spay/neuter programs designed to help end pet overpopulation. Each spay and neuter program helps offset veterinary costs for individuals in low-income households, including senior citizens on fixed incomes and people experiencing other financial hardships. Due to limited funding, each program is first come, first serve and preference is given to female pets.

Trap, Neuter, Release (TNR) Program

Trap, Neuter, Release (or TNR) is a program provided by the Humane Society of Midland County to help control the population of feral cats in our community.  We partner with property owners who will humanely capture feral cats and bring them to the shelter to be neutered and then return them back to their property.   This is an excellent way to have cats on a property to provide the benefits of pest control without having to deal with the issues related to them having multiple litters.

Pet Pantry Network

Founded in 2009 for Midland County residents, the Pet Pantry Network assists residents in need who are struggling to feed their pets. The Pet Pantry provides supplemental food to feed pets one month at a time. Residents may receive assistance no more than six times per calendar year. Proof of spay/neuter is required.

Donations of dry dog and cat kibble or monetary donations for the Pet Pantry are accepted. The Pet Pantry is open by appointment or on Thursday afternoons, 1:30-2:30 p.m.
