Dr. Andrew Pepper DVM has kindly offered to examine the ill pets of Sag Harbor food pantry clients.  Dr. Pepper does not have a mobile office so the pet will be examined in the Sag Harbor home where it resides.  He will advise pet owners as to the best course of treatment for their pet.

He will not be able to administer injections, medicines or do blood work free of charge, but will do his utmost to keep costs for such treatments as low as possible.

* Please see one of the people at the Food Pantry front desk  so that you can be provided with a form to be given to Dr.Pepper.

Spay and neuter assistance-application at link.


Our organization will continue to assist local residents have their pets spayed and neutered as we've done in the past. There will be a spay/neuter clinic held on a regular basis. We will also be including a "TNR" program for feral cats. We can help trap the ferals, have them spayed/neutered, then return them to the colony.

We plan on starting a fund to assist with the costs of emergency veterinary care.

We offer low-cost spay and neuter surgeries to cat and dog owners meeting the income and residency guidelines. This program was established as a result of the increasing numbers of stray, feral and surrendered cats entering Rochester's shelters each year. The program was expanded to include dogs as a result of our desire to assist low-income dog owners too.

The services include administration of anesthetics and pain control medication, surgical sterilization, preventative rabies vaccination, and suture removal 7-10 days post surgery.

The program is limited to City of Rochester residents. Fees are $25 for male cats, $40 for female cats, and $75 for dog surgeries. Applications are available online and at the shelter at 184 Verona Street. Both pages (i.e., application and release) must be completed and payment must be made before the surgeries can be scheduled. Contact Animal Services at (585) 428-SPAY (7729) for more information.
