REASON became a non-profit in May 2012.

First program to offer spay & neuter surgeries through a unique partnership with seven local vets.

Collaborate with the 5 local rescues:

  • A Better Life Animal Rescue
  • Burke County Friends for Animals
  • Cats’ Cradle
  • Partners for Cats
  • Helping Hands/Healing Hearts
    &
    Burke Country Manager, Bryan Steen

By June 2013 we had completed 340 spays and 132 neuters.

Fall of 2013, REASON collaborated with Burke County Management to receive reimbursement from the NC Spay/Neuter Fund. 

May 2014, joined Best Friends Partners.

How Are We Doing? 

We have currently completed  2,293 spays and neuters.

How it Works

  • Volunteers work from their homes answering calls from clients.
  • Clients then meet volunteers at Sign Up Events to sign the forms and pay their co-pay.
  • A volunteer schedules the surgery with one of the vets and notifies the client.
  • The client takes their pet to the vet for surgery. 

How can you help?

  • Donate your time.
  • Donate your financial support. 99% of all donations go directly to spaying and neutering services.

You can help us end the killing.

 Help Burke County be a No Kill County.
