NOTE: Beginning June 1, 2018, vouchers must be purchased before use. Pet owners must prove eligibility (see below). Vouchers can be used at SNAC, Pet Fix Savannah, or the Rescue Ranch. Transportation to these clinics is the responsibility of the pet owner. Pet owners must call the clinic for an appointment. The voucher must be taken and turned into the clinic along with the pet on the day of the appointment. See the "Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Options" page for clinic contact information.
We will be offering additional low-cost options to the community in the future. In the meantime, please do not wait to spay and neuter. Shelters are full of "accidental" litters.
The $20 Fix
The Humane Society of Statesboro & Bulloch County offers low-cost spay & neuter to pet owners who cannot afford it.
Our $20 Fix voucher program allows individuals to “fix” their pet for only $20, including a rabies vaccination if needed.
The Humane Society pays the balance of the surgery amount with money raised through fundraising events, grants, and donations.
To receive a "$20 Fix" voucher, please call 912-681-9393. When leaving a message, please repeat your phone number twice.
If you email us, please include your phone number in your message.
Low cost clinics can be found on our low-cost spay/neuter options page.
To qualify for the $20 Fix voucher
Our goal is help those who cannot afford to spay and neuter their pets. Check the "Where to Spay & Neuter" page for low-cost options. Because of our limited funding, vouchers are for:
- anyone who adopts from the county shelter
- low-income households
- full-time college students with particular breeds that
most often end up at the county shelter (pit terriers, labs, hounds). Students
must not live with their parents nor have spouses who are
- other situations (i.e., feral cats) that may be eligible
1. You must be a Bulloch County resident.
2. You must own the dog or cat unless the cat is stray or feral.
3. College students must show a current class schedule.
4. Low-income households must show low-income
or public assistance documentation.
5. Exceptions will be made with regard to your situation.
If you can afford the low cost clinics' already low spay/neuter rates ($45-$80) ,
please do not ask for a voucher. If you bought your pet from a breeder, please do not ask for a voucher. It is understood that if you can afford to buy from a breeder then you can afford to pay your own veterinary expenses. Our goal is to prevent future unwanted litters and help the many pet owners in the county that truly need the assistance. Humane Society volunteers work hard to fundraise and we do not receive any government assistance for this program.
For a voucher, contact the Humane Society:
(include your phone number in the email)
After receiving a voucher, you must call the appropriate clinic for the appointment. The Humane Society does not make the appointments.
If you live outside Bulloch County, contact us and our volunteers may be able to give you options for your area. We want to help end the pet overpopulation and suffering throughout Southeast Georgia.
If you are scheduled for a SNAC transport appointment before May 24:
Humane Society volunteers will be at Anderson's for the SNAC pick ups. If you have been approved for a voucher, the HS volunteers will have your voucher with them in their file. If you requested to borrow a crate, the volunteers also will have the crate with them. If you need to borrow a crate, call us at 912-681-9393.
1. Your voucher must accompany your pet to the clinic. This determines how much you pay when your pet returns the next day.
2. Your pet must be in a hard-sided, plastic crate for transport.
Feral or unfriendly household cats must be in a trap.
The Humane Society has plastic crates and traps to lend you for free.
Contact us (912-681-9393) before your appointment to let us know.
Our volunteers will bring your crate to Anderson's the morning of your appointment
or an arrangement can be made for you to get the crate or trap ahead of time.
No wire cages are allowed for transport.
3. Take your pet’s current rabies certificate, if it has one.
Without a current certificate, the clinic vet must give your pet a rabies shot
as required by law—and the cost is covered by your $20 payment.
A rabies tag is not sufficient proof of vaccination.
4. Be on time for your appointment/transport pick-up (Tuesdays @ 7:30 a.m.) and the return transport the next day (Wednesday @ 11:30 a.m.).
5. Payment is due when your pet returns.
SNAC accepts cash, check, or credit card (with ID).
The $20 voucher covers spay or neuter services and a rabies shot, if needed. Any other services you request for your pet will be your responsibility.
SNAC will provide FREE transport for Bulloch County until May 24, 2018. The SNAC van picks up and returns your pet to the parking lot at Anderson’s General Store, 23736 Hwy 80, Statesboro.
You may also choose to take your pet directly to the SNAC clinic. Either way, if you must cancel your appointment, be sure to call SNAC as soon as possible so the appointment may be used by someone else.
NOTE: The free SNAC transport to Statesboro will end after May 24, 2018. After that time, pet owners must take their pets up to the clinic for appointments.
