The Spayed Club

Local Group Does Spay Neuter Right

by Diane Witiak

Each year, approximately 3 to 4 million homeless pets are euthanized in the United States. Included in that number are the more than 35,000 dogs, puppies, cats and kittens that are put to death in the seven shelters in the Greater Philadelphia. These animals were euthanized simply because there are not enough homes for them.

The Spayed Club is a nonprofit organization committed to solving dog and cat overpopulation in the Greater Philadelphia area and beyond. Through education and a unique, low-cost spay/neuter program, The Spayed Club works today to prevent tomorrow's unwanted litters from being born. As of 2008, The Spayed Club has provided funding to support the neutering and spaying of more than 50,000 animals.

The Spayed Club offers low-cost spay/neuter certificates to those who qualify. If your household (NOT individual) yearly income is $35,000 or less, you can qualify. If your income is too high, we do make allowances for “Special Circumstances” (for example, if you are trapping a feral cat colony).

The Spayed Club is a Pennsylvania, all-volunteer, nonprofit organization, registered with the Charitable Organizations Bureau, with IRS 501(c)(3) status. All donations are tax-deductible. Because The Spayed Club is all-volunteer, 100% of your donations go to support the animals. To support our cause, click on the button at the left to 'Make A Donation', or mail your donations to The Spayed Club, P.O. Box 1145, Frazer, PA 19355.

Animal Welfare Association

The Animal Welfare Association is a non-profit organization providing shelter for orphaned animals, low-cost spay and neuter services, pet assisted therapy and humane education for the community since 1948. The shelter accepts animals of any species for which appropriate care and housing can be provided, or as an emergency shelter until a more suitable placement can be found.

Buzzy's is currently receiving the bulk of its cats and kittens for adoption, which have temporary homes in Buzzy's Cat Rooms, from the Animal Welfare Association located in Voorhees, New Jersey.

K-9 Fundraising

K-9 Dog Fundraising


Buzzy's has met with children, parents and members of the Lower Merion K-9 Unit to launch the fundraising to raise $7,500 to purchase and train the next K-9 dog for the Lower Merion Police Department.

Buzzy’s has purchased several thousand large unique shopping bags which are being contributed by Buzzy’s to launch this fundraising effort. Bags will be sold at Buzzy’s for a contribution of $15, or more if the purchaser wishes to contribute more. Each bag will contain a $10 coupon to purchase goods at Buzzy’s. (One bag purchaser will also WIN a $250 shopping spree at Buzzy's.) 100% of all proceeds from the sale of the bags will be forwarded to the Lower Merion Police Department’s K-9 Unit as fundraising revenue toward the acquisition of the K-9 dog.

Buzzy’s also has contribution jars in the store for donations directly toward this K-9 fundraising effort.

The dog acquired will be a German Shepard who will spend 14 weeks in training with its Lower Merion K-9 Unit handler at the Philadelphia Police Academy. K-9 dogs, throughout their working career, receive 2 additional days per month of continual training. Lower Merion has 4 dogs, 1 assigned to each patrol squad, trained in basic patrol, including tracking, article/evidence searches, building searches, criminal apprehension, agility and obedience. Two of the dogs are also trained in narcotics detection and two are trained in explosives detection.

Children and families will have the opportunity to participate in the naming of this newest addition to Lower Merion’s K-9 Unit.

If you would like to make a contribution towards the purchase of the next K-9 Unit dog, please make your check payable to the “Lower Merion Police Department, K-9 Unit” and drop it off at Buzzy’s. Thank you!
