GLT Datebook: Humane Society Offers Opportunities

Dec 16, 2017

The Humane Society of Central Illinois (HCI) is fighting the pet over-population problem with a series of spay/neuter clinics. Plus its doors are open to young people who want to help out by volunteering.

  • The HCI hosts regular low-income spay/neuter clinics for cats and kittens. The cost is just $30 for each cat and kitten.
  • Because the demand is so high, there are several clinics offered a month. The clinics fill up fast, and pre-registration is required.
  • For puppies and dogs, there's a monthly spay/neuter clinic. The cost is $75. Again, preregistration is required.
  • If a young person in your life is looking for a way to give back, volunteering at the Humane Society is a great way to go.
  • There's many activities for young people, including working in the cat rooms, grooming, cleaning windows and dishes, mowing the grass, walking dogs and doing laundry.
  • Those under sixteen must be accompanied by an adult.
  • A training and orientation session is required beforehand.
