THANK YOU TO ALL THE LISTENERS AND BOWLERS FOR A SUCCESSFUL 2017 PINS FOR PETS RADIO and BOWL-A-THON!! Numbers are still being totaled but we estimate we made our goal of $90,000!!!

  1. Managing Director
    4 1/2 yr. female Domestic Longhair, found as a stray in Bethlehem. Tested positive for FIV but can live a normal life with other friendly cats. Great lap cat, loves her person and loves to be brushed and needs a forever home. Dogs are ok!
  2. Managing Director
    Penny was viciously attacked by another dog and has undergone extensive surgery in order to eat and drink once again. She is on the road to recovery in the home of some wonderful people who are providing much love and attention to this wonderful little dog.
  3. Managing Director
    Border collie/jack Russell mix found on the side of the road in a crate too small for her to move around in. Luckily someone drove by and noticed the two cages and stopped. The good Samaritan saved Tessa and her sister, Jessa by bringing them into the Center. We are grateful for the foster family currently taking care of both.

Spay & Neuter Clinic

Reducing homeless pets in Northampton County

The Center for Animal Health & Welfare offers a comprehensive spay/neuter program that allows for low cost surgeries for feral and stray cats.  Throughout the week, dedicated veterinarians and volunteers help to perform surgeries to help prevent and manage the animal overpopulation crisis.  Low income families are also welcome to use these services for their pets.

This program benefits all of the Center’s animals, since all animal are spayed or neutered before they are adopted from our shelter.
