Low-Cost Spay and Neuter Opportunity for Veterans

Each November, Stray H.E.L.P. shows their appreciation to America’s military veterans by offering them a special rate of $35 for spay/neuter and rabies vaccination services for their cat(s). This year, the low-cost clinic—available to past and present military personnel—will be held November 18, 2023, at Trinity Episcopal Church, in Fishkill.

“We are grateful to our military men and women who make personal sacrifices to protect our democracy. This is a small way we can give back to them in thanks. When they arrive at our clinic, we are then able to thank them personally for their service,” says Ann LaGoy, president of Stray H.E.L.P. and owner of local cruelty-free product line Sound Earth. “This program has grown over the last eight years. Many cats and their military parents have been able to take advantage of this offer.”

Stray H.E.L.P. strives to protect and improve the lives of homeless, free-roaming community cats through learning as a means to guide their work, and community education and collaboration to facilitate cat care. They promote the benefits of spay/neuter as the primary way humans can assist cats to live healthier and safer lives.

Location: 5 Elm Ct., Fishkill, NY. To make an appointment for the clinic, call 845.206.9021. For more information about Stray H.E.L.P., call 845.232.0336 or visit Sound Earth products for home, people and pets are available for purchase at
