Pet Help near Fort Worth Texas

Humane Society of North Texas (HSNT)

HSNT has a free spay and neuter program for those residing in North Texas who are receiving government assistance, worker’s compensation, or disability. You must apply to the program by filling out their application online. If you are unable to join the program, they do offer a sliding scale fee program based on your income to create a very affordable spay and neuter program. You can contact the Spay and Neuter Clinic at (817) 332-4768, extension 112.

They also offer low-cost vaccinations and tests once per month. The cost ranges from $5, for Rabies Vaccinations, to $20, for FELV/FIV Tests. Every day they provide a service to low-income households that allows you to have your pet microchipped for just $15 at their Main Shelter Location, 9 am. to 5 pm.

Sadly, euthanasia is sometimes required. HSNT offers humane ways for no cost to alleviate our pets suffering.

If a dire emergency occurs, HSNT is the only humane agency in North Texas that offers a K-911 service 24/7. This service is reached at (817) 891-5911. This service is rather specific, as they state: “This program is designed to respond to animals in urgent need of rescue or humane euthanasia to alleviate suffering. We are unable to provide veterinary care and K-911 is not a substitute for an emergency veterinary clinic.”

Texas Coalition for Animal Protection (TCAP)

TCAP is a non-profit organization that offers low-cost services, from $5 to $35 for vaccines. Most of their services cost around $10 or $15. Vaccinations are available Monday-Friday, 9 am. to 12 pm. They also offer spay and neuter, dental cleaning, and wellness services at low prices. Call them today at (817) 837-4500.

Our cat suddenly got very cloudy eyes yesterday, and just over night they turned almost white. I google and YouTube whole day and still have no idea. Could be FIP or just eye disease. My husband and I are both international students and we don’t have income. We only have money barely cover the tuition and life spending. Our cat was from our next door neighbor who moved out without taking the cat. She strayed in the community for a while, and then one day she came to our apartment, laid down on the floor and didn’t want to leave again. It has been 4 years ago. We may need to leave the U.S. soon. We are kind of super busy these days. Can you tell me where and who can give her a check-up with affordable price?
