TRANSPORT UPDATE: Our next available transport date for cats is July 5th. We will post our second July date for both dogs and cats as soon as we receive it from the ASPCA. Due to staff shortages, the ASPCA Spay/Neuter Alliance reduced the number of surgeries they can perform so we book up quickly, especially for female dogs.
Haywood Spay/Neuter History
We date back to 1955 when a small group of local residents founded the Haywood County Humane Association “to prevent cruelty to animals and to promote humane educational programs on a county-wide basis.” We reorganized in 1973 and again in 1986, forming the Haywood Animal Welfare Association as a non-profit, tax-exempt community service organization. We’ve made great strides since the days of non-existent county animal control laws and a back-alley county animal shelter. For instance, we were the driving force in the construction of the Haywood County Animal Shelter in 1990, and we worked on passing the legislation for the new Adoption Center and intake shelter that opened in April 2018.
We have sponsored over 30,000 spay/neuters since 2002.
