ABOUT US

The combined efforts of local rescue groups and Cabarrus Animal Control/Shelter can not solve the problem of neglect, abandonment and uncontrolled birth of unwanted companion animals. Our community must join their efforts and be part of the solution! Your donation to Spay It Forward will help fund the spay or neuter of a dog or cat, thus instantly preventing future offspring.

Spay It Forward is not a spay and neuter clinic.

Our organization ONLY assists in funding spay and neuter procedures

in North Carolina through generous gifts from our donors.

Mission

Spay It Forward is a 501 (c)3 organization formed January 2014 whose mission is to alleviate the population of unwanted companion animals by providing funds for spay and neuter of pets of low income families and pets otherwise neglected.

Who We Are

We are an all-volunteer group who well understands the inhumane results of pets who are allowed to continuously breed. We are dedicated to raising funds for and educating our community about the dire necessity of spay and neuter.

Where We Help

Our funding services are limited to North Carolina residents.

Spay It Forward will provide a copy of the organization’s 990 form upon request.
