COVID-19 Forces Humane Society to Cancel Two Spring Events

Wednesday, January 13th, 2021

Because of continuing COVID-19 concerns the Lassen County Humane Society has announced the cancellation of this year’s annual St. Patrick’s Day dinner and the annual Yard Sale fundraiser, normally held in May.

“We’re hoping to be able to do some kind of fundraising event by the fall,” said Humane Society spokesperson Chris Geffre.

“In the meantime, we are able to continue running our Pups on Parole program, as well as paying for the spay or neuter of all adoptable cats and dogs at the Lassen County Animal Shelter.”

The organization has also started a brief program to subsidize the spaying of female cats, hopefully reducing the number of unwanted kittens this spring.

“Although we are not having fundraising events, we, of course, welcome cash donations. As always, we are greatly appreciative of the generous support we’ve always received from Lassen County residents and businesses.”

Cat Spay Subsidy Program

Now is the time to get those female cats spayed in order to prevent unwanted litters in the spring and the Lassen Humane Society’s cat spay subsidy program will help Lassen County residents who can’t afford the full cost of getting their cats spayed.

The Humane Society will pay $50 towards a cat spay surgery at one of the area vets.

This program started on January 1st, 2021 and is expected to run until 100 cats have been spayed.

Cat owners should contact the veterinary office of their choice right away to get an appointment as soon as possible.

Participating vets are:

Lassen Veterinary Service – 257-6311
Thompson Peak Veterinary Clinic – 253-3190
Nelson Veterinary Service – 258-7264
Chester Veterinary Clinic – 258-4242

Please note that only $50 will be paid towards the cost of a spay surgery and payments will be made directly to the participating veterinarians.

All costs above the $50 subsidy are the responsibility of the cat owner.
