Pulaski County residents encouraged to GIVE 5 for Spay and Neuter Fund

PULASKI COUNTY, Ark. (September 14, 2023) – When paying their taxes this fall, Pulaski County residents can help their neighbors spay and neuter their pets by contributing $5 or more to the Pulaski County Animal Control Spay/Neuter Fund, also known as the GIVE 5 fund.

This tax season, County residents can give a voluntary donation of $5 or more on their business, real estate or personal property taxes to help fellow residents spay or neuter their pets. Taxpayers can give more than $5 if they wish and every dollar donated will subsidize spay/neuter services for pets of Pulaski County residents who cannot afford the cost to spay/neuter on their own.

How to GIVE 5:

Residents have two options to GIVE 5 to the Pulaski County Animal Control Spay and Neuter Fund when paying their taxes: use the payment coupon when paying by check, or if paying online, check the “voluntary – animal control” box when checking out.

  • Financial vouchers with partnering veterinary clinics,
  • Special spay and neuter clinics organized, publicized and held throughout the various county communities, and
  • Possible access to mobile spay and neuter clinics in target neighborhoods.
  • Services will be limited to spay/neuter, vaccinations against preventable diseases and wellness screenings.

Pulaski County Animal Services provides two clinics with vouchers in the County: Eubanks Veterinary Clinic located at 1219 W. 35th St. in North Little Rock and Animal Medical Clinic at 1718 AR-161 in North Little Rock.

How to use the spay/neuter fund:

Pet owners can contact Eubanks Veterinary Clinic at (501) 753-8337 or Animal Medical Clinic  at (501) 945-3244 to schedule the procedure through the Pulaski County spay/ neuter voucher.

On the day of the procedure, residents bring their pet to the clinic. At the clinic, pet owners sign the voucher and it’s applied for the spay and neuter procedure, which includes rabies for a total of $10. Owners may also get other services for their pet during the same appointment at an additional cost. This is not part of the spay and neuter voucher.
