AnimalKind's mission is to end the unnecessary euthanasia of adoptable cats and dogs in North Carolina shelters.
Note: As of July 13th, 2015 THE $20 FIX program is temporarily suspending issuing new spay and neuter vouchers to residents of Durham County due to low program funding. We apologize for any inconvenience. If you need information about reduced-cost spay/neuter options around Durham please contact our office at 919-870-1660 or visit our online search tool.
Over 16,166 needy cats and dogs have been helped through THE $20 FIX program since 2004!
