Companion Animal Assistance Program
Low-cost Spay/Neuter Services
Financial Aid Based on Need/Availability
Serving the Stillwater, Oklahoma area.
CAAP is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the health and welfare of companion animals through spay/neuter assistance and education. To this end, we provide low cost spay and neuter services on an individual basis. We also work with Stillwater Animal Control by helping spay/neuter animals being adopted from these facilities.
The work of Companion Animal Assistance Program (CAAP) is done through the help of local veterinarians who provide spay and neuter procedures at a reduced cost, which is shared by the pet owner and CAAP.
CAAP also works to bring mobile spay-neuter clinics to Stillwater and surrounding areas. These clinics allow 50 to 60 pets to be spayed/neutered in one day, thus making this health care available to many persons at one time. Pet owners are also given the opportunity to have pets vaccinated for rabies and advised on grooming and flea/tick problems.
Why spay or neuter pets?
Spay/Neuter benefits pet owners by making pets better companions and saving owners money. Neutered males are less likely to spray homes with urine, escape from yards, fight with other animals or be hit by cars. Spayed females won’t howl while in heat, bleed in the house, or attract male animals. Spay/neuter reduces the incidence of a number of pet health problems that can be difficult and/or costly to cure.
Spay/neuter benefits pets by helping them live longer and healthier lives. They are less likely to contract certain kinds of cancers and are less likely to be turned over to shelters because of behavior problems.
Spay/neuter benefits our community by reducing the number of homeless animals burdening our shelters and adding to taxpayer costs. Shelters around the nation spend an average of $176/ animal that comes through their door. Nationally, U.S. taxpayers spend over $1 billion/year to deal with homeless pets
