NOW Is The Time To Spay and Neuter!

Friends-of-Hardin-County-Animal-ShelterNOW is the time to spay/neuter your cats! Help us make kitten season a non-event – – or at least less of an event. If you turned in kittens to the shelter in the last year and kept the mother cat, you are eligible to have the mother cat spayed at NO charge. If this is you, please call 502-437-4227 and leave your name and number so we can get you on the shelter surgery schedule.

If you need your cats (or dogs!) spayed or neutered and don’t think you can afford the entire thing, please apply for a Spay/Neuter Assistance Program certificate from FOHCAS! Go to for an application! We have partnered with Helmwood Veterinary Clinic, Heartland Veterinary Clinic and Etown Animal Hospital to help Hardin County residents fix their pets at little to no charge. Outside/feral cats and Pit Bulls are fixed at NO CHARGE to you.

And if your pets are fixed and you want to help us fix others, please go to to learn how to donate to our spay/neuter programs!

logoPrevent more. Fix at month four.

More than 70,000 puppies and kittens are born every day in the United States – half are accidents. And when about four million homeless pets are killed in shelters each year, it’s time we took the “oops” out of the equation. But you can help. All you have to do is remember one number: four. As in four months.

Kittens can get pregnant as early as four months and puppies as early as six months, which means a litter of “uh-oh’s” can happen sooner than you think. By spaying and neutering your pet at four months, you can stop the accidents before they happen. And that helps keep animal shelters from crowding, and pets from being killed. Thank you for being part of the solution. Together, we can Save Them All®.


Spread the word about the Animal Refuge Center and its work for the homeless pets of Hardin County, Kentucky to all your friends and family! We can't do our work without YOUR support!
