"Penny's Promise" was created to aid in our mission to help decrease the suffering of stray dogs and cats by promoting spay and neuter. Penny, shown here in the photo at the left, was dumped, injured, and about to give birth to puppies. She was an older dog who had been used for a puppy mill and was in horrible health. Friends of Animals helped her through the birthing of her puppies, but since she was so emaciated the trauma of the birth was more than her frail body could handle. Due to this traumatic ordeal, we promised each other that we would do everything we could to prevent this from happening to any other animal in Moore County. We created "Penny's Promise" as a program to financially assist pet owner's with spay and neuter surgery costs on a case by case basis. Penny's Promise is currently only available for Moore County, TN residents.

Our Spay and Neuter Program

 

We are actively assisting members of our community with having their pets spayed and neutered.
This program is limited to Moore County, TN residents only. 

WE CAN FINANCIALLY ASSIST YOU WITH HAVING YOUR PET SPAYED/NEUTERED! EACH CASE IS EVALUATED INDIVIDUALLY. GIVE US A CALL AT 931-434-7508 OR FILL OUT THE INFORMATION BELOW AND WE WILL GET YOUR PET ON THE WAY TO A HAPPY, HEALTHIER LIFE. 

Reasons to spay/neuter:

  • Reduce Spraying/Marking

  • Reduce Roaming

  • Reduce Aggression

  • Lower Risk of Cancer 

  • Decrease Overpopulation

  • Increase Your Pet's Lifespan

Spaying/Neutering will NOT stop your pet from

hunting. 

Your dog is trained to hunt by you. If your cat

has been naturally hunting it will continue to do

so. Fertility has nothing to do with that.

You do NOT have to let your pet have its first 

heat cycle.

Spaying before the first heat cycle has been 

proven to be healthier AND younger dogs tend 

to recover faster!

Spaying/Neutering does NOT make your pet

overweight. 

Like humans, diet and lack of exercise are what

play a role in your pet's weight!

Spaying/Neutering will NOT make your pet 'less

of a man.'

Your pet does not know he is a 'man'. If you are

that attached to his 'manhood', ask your vet

about a vasectomy instead.

Feral cat concerns? 

Let's get our cat population under control! 

What is a feral cat?

A cat that will not allow humans to handle or touch it.

How?

Trap, Neuter, Release (TNR)

These cats are trapped in a live trap, transported to be fixed, then released back into their environment once they are healthy enough. These cats will also have their ears tipped so the community knows that they are fixed! We can prevent so many unwanted litters not only at your home but in the community as well.
