SPOT has been working locally to reduce pet overpopulation for almost two decades. As an all-volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) organization we are dedicated to raising funds to assist low/no income dog owners in Lane County to have their dogs spayed or neutered.
Since 2008, SPOT has provided funds to fix over 3,800 dogs, which has in turn saved tens of thousands of unwanted puppies from being born and being neglected, abandoned or euthanized in shelters.
SPOT’s mission has always been to ensure that no one who is willing to take this important step for their dog companion is turned away for financial reasons. SPOT engages in extensive outreach to find community members who need our help, and receives many referrals from local organizations including the WAG Spay/Neuter Clinic, Pro-Bone-O (providing vet assistance for dogs of the unhomed), local veterinarians, humane societies and rescue groups.
SPOT’s small, hardworking board and a host of dedicated volunteers, receives no salaries and pays no rent and has only minimal overhead. This enables SPOT to put 97% of all raised funds directly into spay/neuter vouchers. SPOT receives no government funding and depends entirely on local donors, fundraisers and occasional grants to continue this important work.
