There are two primary programs to support Tri-Valley community pets :

Spay and Neuter

Paws In Need has expanded the availability of financial assistance for Spay and Neuter surgeries to the general public. This is needed to reduce the number of animals that come to local shelters costing taxpayers millions of dollars each year.

The Spay/Neuter Program offers financial assistance to reduce the stray and feral overpopulation in our community. Your generous donation of;

$ 15.00 will pay for a flea treatment for one animal
$ 50.00 will pay for neutering services for a male animal
$ 75.00 will pay for spaying services of a female animal
$ 100.00 will pay for spaying services of a female animal with complications

Urgent Care / Advanced Procedures

This program exists to help cover one-time costs for pet owners who cannot afford necessary emergency veterinary care. Its goal is to prevent unnecessary suffering and / or euthanasia of pets because the owner lacks financial resources.

We want to thank the following veterinary hospitals for their on-going support of Paws In Need.

Recently Dr. Ayshea Quintana from the Arroyo Veterinary Center responded to some dental hygiene questions from Cynthia Cohen, one of our new fundraising team members. The answers are below in bold.

1. What kinds of animals do you recommend dental hygiene for? All animals? Just dogs and cats? Any other animals?

A physical examination of any animal under the care of a veterinarian should always include an examination of the mouth. Since veterinarians in general treat many species, any dental treatments and hygienic practices are at the recommendation of their respective veterinarian.
