General Announcements

  • Alabama Spay/Neuter is proud to announce that PetSmart Charities, the leading funder of animal welfare in North America, is sponsoring free spay/neuter surgeries to dogs and cats living in Bessemer through a program called SNIPsmart!
    Qualifying, low-income households and community cat caregivers can have up to 5 dogs and cats fixed for free.  Households must be enrolled in one of the following programs: Medicaid, Disability, WIC, SNAP, Welfare, SSI, Hardship Determination Program, and TANF. Stray or feral cats also qualify for free spay/neuter surgery. These community cats need to be dropped off and picked up in a humane cat trap (no squirrel traps) on Mondays or Tuesdays. All stray, neighborhood cats will be ear tipped to show that they have been sterilized and have a caregiver. Dogs and cats which aren’t current on their rabies vaccination will receive one and the owner will be charged $16 per animal receiving a vaccination.
