The Fox Valley Humane Association provides families in need of assistance with the spaying/neutering of their animals for a low cost fee. Please fill out and submit or drop off the application listed below. Once an applicant is approved, the payment must be made before the surgery is scheduled.
What age should I consider spay/neuter for my dog? The conversation regarding the most appropriate age to alter your dog is ongoing and largely based on the breed and anticipated adult weight of your puppy. In general, for dogs who will exceed an adult weight of 50 lbs., there may be benefits to delaying spaying or neutering until over a year of age. While FVHA does not do consults for the proper age to surgically sterilize your dog, owners need to be aware that the recommendations for these procedures have changed in recent years. We encourage owners to research this topic and make a decision that they are comfortable with when deciding when to sign their pet up for the SNAP program (Spay and Neuter Assistance Program).
What age should I spay/neuter my cat? We believe in the “fixed by five” standard for cats (all kittens should ideally be spayed or neutered by 5 months of age). However, cats of any age are candidates for surgical sterilization. Please click here for more information on our TNR program for spay/neuter of outdoor/feral/barn cats.
~Due to the demand for this service, pet owners should be prepared for possible delays in scheduling. FVHA will do its best to expedite the process for you. Thank you for your understanding~

Even if your pet is kept mostly indoors, it is very important to protect your pet from contagious diseases. Many contagious diseases are airborne and your pet could easily be exposed through an open window. There is also a risk if your pet happens to get out the door. Boarding your pet, dog parks and grooming stations are also areas where your pet could be exposed. Luckily, there are vaccines to help prevent many illnesses that affect our pets.
Fox Valley Humane Association is here to help you keep up with your pet’s vaccinations. EVERY MONTH we will be holding LOW-COST VACCINE CLINIC by appointment only. Vaccines are priced at $15 each and are administered by trained professionals.
RABIES $15 ~ For Dogs, Puppies, Cats, and Kittens
Rabies virus is fatal and all mammals, including humans, are susceptible to infection. Rabies vaccinations for dogs are required by law in most states. One and three* year rabies shots are available. *For three year shot, must provide paperwork to prove that animal received a rabies vaccine within the last year or that the last vaccine was a three-year vaccine without a large lapse.
DISTEMPER $15 ~ For Dogs, Puppies, Cats, and Kittens
Dogs and Puppies: combination vaccine protects against Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, and Parvovirus
Cats and Kittens: combination vaccine protects against feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia (sometimes called feline distemper)
BORDETELLA $15 ~ For Dogs and Puppies
Commonly called Kennel Cough, this virus causes an extremely contagious upper respiratory infection. If your dog goes to a dog park, groomer, boarding kennel, doggie daycare, or dog shows, this vaccine is strongly recommended.
Canine leptospirosis or ‘lepto’, is an infection caused by at least four species of Leptospira bacteria. Dogs typically pick up the bacteria from water or soil contaminated from infected urine. Most at risk are pets that spend a lot of time in the water or in an area that gets rain or snow runoff, as well as dogs that drink from puddles or ponds. After the initial vaccination, a booster should be given 3-4 weeks afterward and a yearly booster is recommended.
The primary carrier of Lyme disease is the black-legged tick also called a ‘deer tick’ or ‘bear tick’. When infection leads to disease in dogs, the dominant clinical feature is lameness due to inflammation in the joints. After the initial vaccination, a booster should be given 3-4 weeks afterward and a yearly booster is recommended.
