The Humane Society of Nelson County has two programs designed to help owners who cannot afford regular prices for spay/neuter surgery. Our programs are intended for people on public assistance, disability, social security, or temporarily stressed financially. We also will help caretakers of feral cat colonies, or people who have out-of-control populations (“barn cats”), or other special circumstances.
- Cats – Spay/neuter surgery is done at our weekly clinic in Bardstown. We request $40 for females and $25 for males, which is less than the actual cost to us. A rabies shot is also given at no additional charge. We never turn anyone away for inability to pay. To schedule surgery, call 502-349-2082, ext 201, or mail the downloaded application to 2391 New Haven Rd., Bardstown KY 40004.
- Dogs – Please contact us for information on the current program to help dog owners. Call 349-2082 between 10 and 2 pm, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Owners must meet strict eligibility requirements to use the humane society clinic for dogs (View Eligibility Requirements >>)
