At VOCAL we offer programs and services that are beneficial to our pet owners here in Marion County. We believe there are lots of facets to owning a pet so we want to make sure pet parents have all the resources they need. And most of all, we want to keep pets in their homes so all our programs are geared towards helping animals stay with their owners.
We believe that spay and neuter services should be accessible to every person at every income level, and we know that prevention is the key to controlling pet overpopulation. Our Fix the Future Fund is set up to subsidize spay and neuter surgeries for pet owners who need an extra hand to do the right thing for their pet.
Food Bank: Project FEED
Our pet food bank supplies food to families who need assistance. We believe in keeping pets with their owners and in their homes. Our pet food program, Project FEED does just that; it provides food to animals who may otherwise be surrendered due to financial hardship. We are proud to provide food and supplies to families to help them more comfortably keep their cats and dogs.
COMING SOON: Community Clinic & Resource Center
The main goal of our organization since our incorporation in 2015 has been to open a low-cost spay neuter clinic. We worked tirelessly for four years fundraising and in April 2019 we completed construction on our new state of the art clinic. The services our clinic will be offering in Marion County focus on prevention but also pet wellness. As our mission has evolved over the last several years, we have seen the need to expand services in our clinic beyond just spay and neuter and focus on low-cost wellness for pets in need. Stay tuned for our grand opening!
TRAP NEUTER & RETURN
The most humane option for truly feral cats is trap-neuter-return. Through this process, cats are
humanely trapped, spayed or neutered, given a rabies shot, ear tip, and occasionally wound treatment,
and returned to the location they were trapped. We are proud to have a group of volunteers who assist with trapping community cats each Wednesday. Visit our TNR page to learn more about our fast-growing program.
VOCAL is exists to solve the homeless pet problem in Marion County. We believe we can solve this problem through community involvement and offering needed services such as spay/neuter, food assistance, TNR services and adoption for those pets who have no place else to go. We are passionate about our mission and the animals in this community. If you have questions on any of our services, feel free to contact us.
