How We Impact the Community
There’ s a national veterinary staff shortage and pet owners everywhere are experiencing the scary effects. With more families bringing in pets, vet hospitals need to reduce elective procedures like spay/neuter to ensure they’re able to see pets for critical care and wellness exams, and area spay/neuter clinics are closing due to staffing issues. Simply put, less spay/neuter options = pet overpopulation. Despite these overwhelming challenges, Napa Humane continues to provide critical preventative services in our community.
In 2021, we performed 4,492 spay/neuter surgeries, saw 3,635 pets for vaccines, microchips, and pet wellness, provided 3,303 children with educational materials teaching them how to be compassionate friends to animals, and fielded thousands of calls seeking behavior help and referrals.
We are the sole provider of regular below-market rate spay/neuter and receive no government funding. It is through our prevention-focused community-based services that we are working toward a more humane Napa Valley.
