Low-Cost Spay and Neuter Program:
With the help of participating veterinarians, the HSO is proud to offer a spay and neuter program open to any pet owner that resides in Northwest Arkansas. Vouchers can be requested via our website at https://hsozarks.org/programs/spayneuter-program/low-cost-spayneuter-vouchers/
Financial assistance is available to low-income pet owners needing help with pet medical emergencies and other special needs.
Shelter and Rescue Outreach:
Grant funding is available to area shelters and rescues for projects and special needs that may fall outside of their annual budgets.
The HSO monitors animal cruelty cases in close partnership with city and county animal control officials and provides educational presentations for children and adult audiences about combating animal cruelty.
HSO takes custody of companion animals via coordination with over crowded shelters in our region, animals that have been neglected or mistreated and have special needs, and via owner surrenders from areas not served by a municipal shelter. After receiving complete veterinary care, these animals are available for adoption to screened applicants.
