Low-Cost Animal Clinic

Low-Cost Spay and Neuter Services

FHS offers low-cost spay and neuter services, including multiple programs for low-income pet owners (that are often times FREE). FHS also provides rescue group pricing and community cat caregiver discounted pricing. Ensuring that all animals are spay and neutered is a focus on ours, as this is the only real way to reduce the over pet population crisis across the country. There are simply not enough good loving homes for all those who need one. Increasing cost of care, along with busy schedules also can hinder a family from adopting a new forever family member.
There are many health reason to spay/neuter your pet as well. Such as did you know that spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast tumors, which are malignant or cancerous in about 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats. Spaying your pet before her first heat offers the best protection from these diseases. Neutering your male companion prevents testicular cancer and some prostate problems.
Spaying a female dog also eliminates the messiness associated with the heat cycle. Neutering of male dogs and cats can prevent certain undesirable sexual behaviors, such as urine marking, humping, male aggression and the urge to roam.

Low-Cost Wellness Clinic

Wellness clinics are offered in which very low cost limited services are available by appointment only at the Flagler Humane Society. Services range from growth removals to dentals, allergy identification and various other treatment options. Wellness Clinics are being held Friday mornings; however, this schedule changes frequently, so please contact FHS at 386.445.1814 and press zero to learn about more available dates.

Pet Identification

  • We provide microchipping, with implantation and registration of the brand 24 PetWatch chips.
  • We also provide Palm Coast licensing and/or personalized, engraving of attractive tags sold at our shelter.

Flagler Animal Services

  • The Flagler Humane Society contracts with Flagler County, the City of Bunnell and Flagler Beach to provide a kinder, gentler animal control with an emphasis on education rather than punitive
  • Our highly skilled and trained Animal Control Officers assist pet owners, often times providing dog houses, collars, transport for pets, and veterinarian care for veterinarian services, and also perform return-to-owner in the field if the owners can be located
  • We also provide emergency call services for injured or sick animals, including wildlife. We respond to these calls 24 hours per day, seven days per week by our officers through the Flagler Sheriff’s dispatch
  • Officers perform neglect and cruelty investigations if the situation warrants, animals may be confiscated with permanent custody and prosecution of the abuser sought through the court system

Return to Owner Services

  • The Flagler Humane Society offers aggressive search methods for your lost pet through various media platforms, such as social media and our very own lost and found. All stray animals who arrive at our shelter are featured on the the website in the found pets section, as well as people can post flyers at the shelter and on Facebook, which has a very active group of followers.
  • Return to owner fees are often waved when we can provide spay/neuter services to pet owners, so if the owner(s) agrees to these terms they can get their pet back at no cost to them. Our goal is to get as many animals spayed and neutered to keep backyard breeding down, as well as overall pet population numbers (not to mention it’s good for the pets health). There are still not enough homes for all the pets who need one.

The FHS Food Bank

Flagler Humane Society provides an outreach program for qualified residents who need assistance for their pets are given pet food and sometimes supplies.

Safekeeping of Pets

Pets belonging to owners entering a domestic violence shelter, entering a hospital or owners incarcerated may be temporarily cared for at the Flagler Humane Society. However; in many cases these individuals can’t afford boarding fees and we of course won’t turn them away if we have the space, therefore, we are always looking for donations to off-set the cost of care for these pets while their owners are unable to care for them. If pets have not been spay or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, or if they have other ailments we can possibly treat…we do, again at no cost to the owners.

Pet Rehoming

Has something happened in your life and you can no longer take care of your pet? Maybe a friend or relative has died, leaving one or more pets to be placed in a new home. You want to be able to do something to help find a new and loving permanent home, rather than turning the pet over to the Flagler Humane Society.

Foster Parenting

Volunteer’s can become a temporary parent for animals with special needs, such as, kittens and puppy’s that need bottle feeding, animals that are un-socialized who need to learn to trust, and animals with medical needs – are all great candidates for the Flagler Humane Society foster home program. Please reach out to our volunteer coordinator at volunteer@flaglerhumanesociety.org to learn more.

Adoption

Our shelter evaluates an animal’s behavior and interests, and matches them to an adopter’s preferences so that you take home a pet you can really click with.  Our Adoption Specialists are here to answer your questions and assist you in your selection process. All adoptions include spay/neuter, canine heartworm test, feline leukemia test, vaccinations, worming, local vet exam, and micro-chip.

Trap/Neuter/Return

Our animal services officers educate the public and provide trapping and transportation in relation to feral cats. In turn our expect medical staff will provide while our shelter medical staff provide this needed assistance for cats needing care. TNR as it’s called, is the only humane and effective way to reduce population numbers. Let our highly trained team help educate you today as to all the many benefits to your community today.

Owner Requested Euthanasia

This is a very special and sensitive service we are proud of offer residents at a very low rate, in comparison to other clinics. Due to the high rates of euthanasia many people simply can’t afford it, therefore forced to watch their beloved pet suffer. Our expert medical team will evaluate your pet to ensure your peace of mind this is in fact the best option. If we feel it is not, we will be honest and offer other solutions to elevating your pet’s suffering.  We encourage you to stay in the room with your senior, or seriously injured pet in order to help with this very compassionate and painless transition. FHS staff that offer this service are highly skilled and trained. Pet owners may use our individual cremation services that are contracted out at very low rates, to make this services available to more people.

We also offer discounts to all veterans on an array of services and items available. We salute the men and women who serve or have served our country!

  • FHS will provide humane materials and conduct interviews for students as they prepare a speech or classroom presentation.

Ambassador Dog Programs

  • Owned, properly trained pets are taken with their volunteer pet owners to visit the sick and elderly in assisted-living facilities, group homes, etc. This Ambassador Dog Program is also involved in a children’s reading program, in which school children read to the dogs, both at schools and at the local library.
  • Reading to cats is a new program we just recently started at Petco. This program is where children come to read to all our adoptable cats, located in the stores. They love the attention and socialization.

Transfer of Pets from Other Shelters

The Flagler Humane Society accepts animals from other shelters as often as possible, in order for them to have a second chance at a new forever home. No animal should be euthanized for lack of shelter space, resources, or due to perhaps not enough eyes on them to have a chance at adoption. And the same goes for if an animal has been at our shelter for a long period of time, it may be time to give them a change of scenery to find that new forever home.

Pet Training

The Flagler Humane Society offers dog training classes to assist you in handling your pet. Dog training takes patience, time, and it’s actually more about training you – not your pet.

Wildlife Care

No animal in need is ever turned away from the Flagler Humane Society, as we care for injured and orphaned animals of most species as space/resources allow. Species of animals beyond our area of expertise are transported in a timely manner to a rehabiliation center or veterinary hospitals to provide the proper care. Once a wild animal is able to survive on its own, we responsibly release them back into their natural habitat.

Surrender Your Pet

This is always the last resort for any pet owner, and should be thought through well before heading to our shelter – but we are here for you if you want help
