Baldwin County Humane Society (BARC!) is sponsoring the Fifth Annual "Spring Kitten Prevention (SKP) Program" this month. Throughout March (or until 500 vouchers are sold) BARC! is offering $30 vouchers for spaying and neutering of cats. Vouchers are available to Baldwin County residents regardless of income and there is no limit on the number of vouchers an individual can purchase.
The goal of the SKP Program is to assist individuals who have adopted a homeless cat and prevent an explosion of kittens during the upcoming "kitten season." The Program is funded by individual donors and foundations and other grantors who share the goal of ending pet overpopulation.
SKP vouchers can be purchased at the BARC! Office at 306 Magnolia Avenue in Fairhope Monday through Thursday from 9 am to 4 pm. You can also download the application on the website
and complete it and mail it along with a $30 money order to receive your voucher in the mail. Vouchers can be used at any of the 24 participating veterinary clinics through April 30. Go to the BARC! website
for the list of participating clinics.
About Baldwin County Humane Society (from their website)
"The Baldwin County Humane Society (BARC!) incorporated in 1979 as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit county-wide animal welfare organization.The corporation was formed to provide a means for the prevention of cruelty to animals within Baldwin County; to assist with the enforcement of lawful means with the arrest, conviction and punishment of all persons violating such laws, and alleviate the over-population of dogs and cats within Baldwin County; to promote the adoption of homeless cats and dogs to good homes; and to help alleviate cruelty to and suffering of animals wherever such may occur.
We rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home hundreds of abused, abandoned and neglected pets annually. We do not have a shelter of our own; rather we are an adoption agency.
BARC! doesn't get any government funding nor are we affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States. We rely solely on the generosity of individual donations, foundations and grants to help the homeless, abused and inured animals."
