LANSING, Ill. (January 16, 2018) – At tonight’s Village Board meeting, Mayor Patty Eidam read a statement from Emily Klehm, CEO of South Suburban Humane Society: “We are thrilled to announce an amazing opportunity for Lansing residents to obtain low-cost spay/neuter services for their dogs. The surgery also includes a rabies vaccine, microchip, and other vaccines and services. The cost to Lansing residents will be $20.”

In Hammond, Indiana, the same offer is being made through Humane Indiana.

This special deal is possible because of a grant from PetSmart Charities. Their goal is to spay/neuter 1,000 dogs in Lansing and Hammond. “When two organizations come together, a lot can be achieved,” says a Facebook post by the South Suburban Humane Society.

To get a dog fixed, microchipped, and vaccinated for a $20 co-pay, residents of Lansing should call the SSHS Spay/Neuter Clinic at 708-755-1110 to book an appointment. Hammond, Indiana, residents can call the HI Estelle Marcus Animal Clinic at 219-922-3811.

The South Suburban Humane Society Clinic is located at 137 W. Joe Orr Road in Chicago Heights. (This is a different address from the shelter itself.)
