West Ward, Southside Pets Eligible for Reduced-Cost Spay/Neuter Deal

Easton's local no-kill shelter, the Center for Animal Health & Welfare, has received funding from PetSmart Charities® to offer low-cost spay/neuter for dogs and cats belonging to residents in the West Ward and Southside neighborhoods in the City of Easton. Easton Animal Hospital, No Nonsense Neutering and the City of Easton are also partnering in this initiative.

Beginning March 1, residents of these two neighborhoods may purchase a $10 voucher to have a dog or cat spayed/neutered. Vouchers can be purchased at Easton Area Community Center, 901 Washington St., Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on the first and third Saturdays of the month, from 9 a.m. to noon.

Payment for the vouchers is cash-only, and the vouchers are valid through December 2014.

"Every day there are more dogs and cats being born than we have enough homes for in our community. The most effective, humane solution to this long-standing problem is spaying and neutering family pets and free roaming cats – one which we will continually advocate for in our community," said the CAHW in a statement accompanying the announcement of the reduced spay/neuter program.

For more information on the vouchers and the program, call the CAHW at 610-252-7722 ext. 8, or Easton Weed and Seed at 610-438-2680.


  1. That's great news! We've brought feral cats to No Nonsense Neutering in Allentown, at $35 a pet. They do great work, so its nice to see this partnership benefiting South Side and the West Ward. Take advantage of it!

  2. Great information. We should build on this story... we, too, have trapped feral cats and taken them to No Nonsense, then released them. The cat problem is huge in the West Ward.

    Thank you,
