On the last Tuesday of February, World Spay Day shines a spotlight on the lifesaving power of spay/neuter and the need for affordable services.

Nearly 3 million healthy and treatable cats and dogs are put down in U.S. shelters each year. That's one every 12 seconds. These are sweet pets who would have made great companions.

Spay/neuter is an effective and humane way to save animals' lives. Spaying (for females) and neutering (for males) are common surgeries veterinarians perform to stop animals from having accidental, surplus litters. Preventing litters reduces the number of animals for whom resources are not available.

In recognition of the need for low-cost spay neuter services for the communities we serve, SOTH will make 100 vouchers available for 100 spay/neuter surgeries of dogs and cats. Vouchers will be available to residents of the mountain communities only (zip codes 93222, 93225, 93243) on a first come, first served basis. Vouchers can be used at at any veterinarian who will submit proof of surgery along with the voucher when requesting payment. Applicants must be able to provide proof of residence (utility bills) and proof of financial need (pay stub, Medi-Cal, SSI or A, or equivalent income). SOTH and the Animal Resource Center will also be working together to provide needed vaccinations and transportation of animals to spay/neuter clinics in either Bakersfield or Simi on a limited basis.

In the summer months our shelter, as well as shelters across the country, becomes inundated with unwanted or abandoned litters of kittens and puppies that create enormous strains on shelter resources. Through spay-neuter programs, these litters can be prevented, and the animals will lead healthier lives.

SOTH and ARC are extremely grateful for all the support from all the people who have supported this special effort. For more information on how you and your pets can participate in this limited program please call 661-245-3398. Please join with us to save and improve the lives of animals.

Hello, welcome and thank you for checking out our campaign. My name is Pamela and I have the joy and pleasure of working with a wonderful group of volunteers at Shelter on the Hill. We are a small community of 7500, located about 30 miles north of Los Angeles. One of my jobs is fundraising. So, here we go.

Shelter on the Hill, A Humane Society is a private Non-profit 501(c)(3) Organization that is dedicated to providing shelter, medical care, behavioral care, rehabilitation, socialization, adoption services, foster care, follow up in-home inspections and inter-agency networking for lost and abandoned animals.

After 20 years of fundraising the facility was built and opened in 2014. Current fundraising consists of the Shelter on the Hill Thrift Store, donation boxes throughout the community, and the Annual Wine and Cheese Event. Our caring and loving community is what has made our goals achievable. Volunteers provide Thrift Store retail duties as well as receiving, fixing, organizing, and displaying merchandise. At the shelter, volunteers feed, walk, groom, train, socialize, clean kennels, provide health care, give loving affection, provide home inspections and adoption services.

Since the opening, in less than 12 months were were able to return over two dozen pets to grateful owners and find new loving homes for more than a 100 more who were never claimed.

Currently, the Shelter is in need of perimeter security fencing of approximately 1000 running feet. We are on a busy frontage road just off I-5. Our 2.4 acre perimeter has a three rail fence which does not restrict animals from running if they get loose. Our fundraiser is designed to provide pet safe no-climb and chain link fence as well as artificial turf for the socialization and activity area, at approximately 700 square feet. This fundraiser is designated to provide the needed fencing and turf. If fundraising exceeds our goal of $24,000.00, additional funds will be used for much needed medical equipment and treatments.
