The Humane Society of the United States Pets for Life program reached a huge milestone last week, logging their 100,000th free spay/neuter procedure.

Since 2010, the Pets for Life program has been dedicated to providing support services to pet parents in underserved communities. The program operates in 36 locations, and has provided over 400,000 essential veterinary services, supplies and medications to people and pets who otherwise might not have received them. Last week, Pets for Life reached a major milestone: its 100,000th spay/neuter surgery performed at no cost to pet owners.

Amanda Arrington, director of Pets for Life says, “No one should ever be denied the opportunity to experience the benefits and joy that comes from the human-animal bond.  Our program does everything possible to keep pets where they belong – with their families, by providing necessary services to keep animals healthy, including spay and neuter, at no charge to people in underserved areas.”
