Low-Cost Spay and Neutering
Pet overpopulation is a huge problem locally and nationwide. Every year, millions of companion animals across the country are euthanized because there aren't enough people to adopt and care for them.
To help pet owners, we offer low-cost spay and neutering twice every month if you qualify. The cost is $50 for cats and dogs under 70 pounds. To use the low income clinic, you must have state or federally funded welfare, food stamps, Medicaid, Social Security, SSI Disability, unemployment, or non-commissioned active military.
Benefits of Spaying/Neutering
It reduces or eliminates the chances of certain types of cancer, particularly cancers of reproductive systems. Healthier pets mean fewer trips to the vet!
Spayed/neutered pets tend to be more calm and less aggressive.
Pets who have been spayed/neutered are less likely to run away-they aren't searching for a mate! You will also won't have unwelcomed male animal visitors looking for your unaltered female.
Spaying and neutering helps ease the burden on community animal shelters and rescue groups.
It also increases the likelihood that animals currently looking for their forever homes will have a greater chance at being adopted.
See our Special Needs Resources page for more information on spay/neutering programs and how you can help reduce pet overpopulation.
