Spay & Neuter
We have limited capacity for spay/neuter through January. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
**Please read through all of the information below before you schedule your pet.
Help fight the tragedy of pet overpopulation by spaying or neutering your cat or dog.
Our public spay/neuter clinic offers affordable surgery for any pet cat or dog that needs it.
What is spay/neuter? Why should I sterilize my pet?
Spay/neuter surgery makes it impossible for your cat or dog to have babies.
Currently, there are not enough homes for all the pets we have and spay/neuter reduces the number of animals born that will end up in shelters or roaming on the street.
The potential benefits include:
- Prevention of reproductive system diseases like deadly infections and cancers.
- Decreased roaming.
- Reduced aggressive tendencies.
- Less nuisance behaviors like marking.
- Reduction in dog license fees.
Thank you for deciding to spay/neuter your pet. Your decision is good for your pet and benefits our community!
Before you get your appointment, please read the following:
- Your pet must be at least 2 months old and weigh at least 2 pounds.
- To save time on the day of your appointment, print and fill out the required forms before your visit.
- Based on your pets physical exam and medical history our veterinarians reserve the right to refuse any and all services.
