Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

All of BSNP's programs are designed to address pet homelessness at the root cause, and provide solutions to prevent animals from ever ending up in our local shelters. By providing affordable and free spay/neuter, we prevent overpopulation and homelessness. By providing other resources such as our HOPE Pet Food Bank and our weekly Wellness Clinics, we help pets stay happy, healthy and in their homes with their families.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Spay and Neuter Surgery

BSNP provides affordable spay and neuter surgeries for cats and dogs through the spay/neuter program.

Population(s) Served

Basic wellness provides vaccinations, microchips and parasite prevention for dogs and cats at risk. This program aims to keep pets healthy and help owners avoid costly trips to the veterinarian and subsequently having to relinquish their pet to the shelter.

Population(s) Served

TNR is a program for feral cats where we loan out live traps to catch community cats in need of spay/neuter surgery. Cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed and eartipped for free or by donation. They are then returned to the location where they were trapped. This is the most humane method of controlling the feral cat population.

Population(s) Served

HOPE provides food for up to three pets once a month for those belonging to people who qualify based on income.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

BSNP strives to address all of the reasons why pets are surrendered to shelters. We want to ensure that pets who are in loving homes are able to stay there through providing affordable veterinary services and the HOPE Pet Food Bank. In 2016 we moved to a larger location where we are able to provide 5,000 affordable spay/neuter surgeries and serve over 2,000 wellness patients. We expanded our services to Warm Springs Indian Reservation where we now provide monthly free spay/neuter clinics for dogs.

In order to reach our goals, BSNP will be focusing on fundraising! We aim to ramp up our advertising and awareness within the community through our Outreach program and manage our education programs and Community Cat program. We hope that grant funding will allow us to offer targeted programs focusing on those most at risk.

Our medical team has trained with the best high volume, high quality spay/neuter clinic in the country and we are now fully capable of safely and efficiently performing up to 40 spay/neuter surgeries per day. We are continuously networking with regional and national spay/neuter and animal welfare organizations such as the Feral Cat Coalition and Oregon Humane Society in Portland and Best Friends Animal Society, Humane Alliance and the Humane Society of the United States nationally to keep up to date on the best practices in our industry.

Since our inception in 2005, our clinic has provided spay/neuter surgery for over 50,000 cats and dogs, drastically reducing the number of pets that would've otherwise ended up in our local open admission shelters. We will continue to measure our progress by the intake and euthanasia rates provided by local open admission shelters and through the volume of calls requesting assistance we receive in our clinic.
