Stephen Charles Saseen  Memorial Fund
 
"To honor Stephen Charles Saseen and to remember the impact he had in our lives, a permanent, endowed memorial fund has been established at the Greater Huntsville Humane Society that allows Stephen’s friends and family to support causes he cared about.  
Stephen was an avid dog and cat lover. He rescued many animals before he died in 2003 in a car accident. He left his family with four dogs to love in his memory. The memorial fund will provide veterinarian assistance for pet owners who cannot afford these services."

Spay Alabama

Spay Alabama's goal is to end the euthanasia of healthy and treatable dogs and cats in Alabama. The program was set into motion by Lynne Fridley of Maddie’s Fund, and Esther Mechler, Founder of SPAY USA. The program provides a single center, a single phone call that accesses all sorts of useful information regarding the various spay/neuter delivery systems, clinics and programs statewide. This means that even people in the poorest, most isolated parts of the state can, with a single (free) phone call, find their nearest affordable spay/neuter program and how to get help. We also identify areas of no service and help get programs started in those areas.
A single toll free number will eliminate confusion and runaround. Toll free numbers afford accessibility to everyone, even those without computers. Other developments include new high volume spay/neuter clinics in Birmingham and Montgomery and a spay/neuter car tag program is now accepting orders.

"Good news for all two-legged and four-legged Macon County residents! In the interest of the public health and safety of the citizens of Macon County and the well being of the County’s animals, the Macon County Humane Society (MCHS) is pleased to announce the implementation of a new low cost spay/neuter program.

"Pet-owning residents of Macon County who meet the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) definition of low income and qualified fulltime students at Tuskegee University in Macon County may apply to the MCHS for financial assistance for low cost sterilization (“fixing”) of their dogs and cats.

"Financial assistance is based on household income. To qualify, applicants must meet the income limits for Macon County as defined by HUD for 2006. This means that financial assistance will be provided to those pet owners whose household incomes fit HUD’s definition of “30% of median, very low, and low.”

"Pet owners with proof of having Class A income will pay $5 for each pet’s surgery and pre-operative work-up; Class B income will pay $15 for the first two pets and $5 for each additional pet; and Class C income will pay $25 for their first two pets and $5 for each additional pet.


"The balance of the qualified pet’s surgical fee will be paid with funding from a grant from the Alabama Animal Control Association, fund-raising activities by the Macon County Humane Society, and the goodwill and surgical expertise of Tuskegee University’s Small Animal Hospital."

Alabama-Huntsville-Zip code 35811-

http://blog.al.com/breaking/2010/04/maddies_fund_grant_provides_fr.html

AL.com April 19, 2010

"If you live in the 35811 zip code and own an unaltered cat or dog, the Spay/Neuter Action Project (SNAP) has a deal for you.

"Anyone within the 35811 zip code (primarily northeast Huntsville) with a cat or dog in need of a spay or neuter surgery, may contact SNAP to make an appointment with a participating vet clinic for free or at a greatly reduced cost.

"The 35811 zip code area was chosen to participate because more people in that area turn in unwanted pets to Huntsville Animal Services than any other local zip code, said Phyllis Hall, a member of the SNAP Board.


"One local veterinarian participating in the program, Dr. Delia Harman of Governors Choice Animal Hospital, said she hopes the program will make Huntsville a shining example to other cities.

""We'll try to help if someone can just get the animal to us," said Harman who participated in a state-wide Maddie's Fund event several years ago where she did at least 300 surgeries.

"Although Governors Choice, 3415 Governors Drive, is not in the 35811 zip code area, Hall said it's just a short distance for many residents. However, Chase Animal Hospital, 1760 U. S. 72 East, and Flint River Animal Hospital, 1009 Homer Nance Road (next to Publix), which are in the 35811 area, are participating in the Maddie's Fund program as well.

"Owners are requested to transport their cat in a carrier and have their dog on a leash for the safety of their pets.

INFO: The Maddie's Fund grant is providing spay and neuter surgeries for cats and dogs in the 35811 zip code. Depending on income, the cost is free to $25. A free rabies shot is also included if needed. Those qualifying for free surgeries include anyone on Medicaid, WIC, food stamps, Social Security disability or if their household income is $25,000 or less. Anyone in 35811 making more than $25,000 may get the spay or neuter surgery for their pets for $25 for the first pet ($10 for each additional pet), plus a free rabies shot. Appointments may be made by calling SNAP at 536-6060.

Montgomery, AL 36109
Phone - 334-395-0086
Fax - 334-270-3399


Good Samaritan and Low Income Grants Available

ALVMA members may apply for a grant from our unrestricted funds for the medical and surgical treatment of pets of financially needy owners or stray animals under two separate programs

Under the “Good Samaritan” grant program, the amount awarded is limited to $400.00 per case, and the money may be spent on a referral.  Routine vaccinations and spay and neuter surgery can be covered under the Good Samaritan program. The patient must have a good prognosis for survival and all applicants must be ALVMA members in good standing. The “owner/applicant” under the Good Samaritan grant program is the veterinary hospital/clinic.  The hospital/clinic must be willing to self-pay 20% of the total treatment charge.

The “Low Income” grants are available for those clients who show a true need for financial assistance. These grants are limited to $400.00 per case and the owner/applicant must be willing to pay 20% of the total treatment charge.  No reimbursements are made for routine preventative care (i.e. vaccinations, heartworm or parasite testing and routine parasite control, or elective surgeries including spays and castrations.)  The animal must have a good prognosis for recovery.


These programs are available through your vet.

"Whenever the economy takes a downturn, obviously and unfortunately pets are sometimes the first things that they have to sacrifice," Laura Golden with the Greater Birmingham Humane Society, said.

"The Greater Birmingham Humane Society is one of several organziations offering assistance to families struggling with paying for their pet's care.

"We do what we call a pet pantry where we accept donations of food and help give those out to folks having some problems, and are temporarily not able to feed their pets," Golden said.

"The shelter also offers low-cost vaccine clinics the first Saturday of every month. This service is open to everyone."
