Spay & Neuter

**With the developing news regarding coronavirus COVID-19, we have decided to temporarily suspend our public spay/neuter services until further notice. Please continue to check our website and social media for updates and upcoming programs. Please stay safe.**

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.
