We ONLY hold our spay/neuter clinics on the second Saturday of each month due to fundraising efforts.

Male Dogs:

     Under 40lbs: next available clinic

     Over 40lbs: 3 months​

Why Spay and Neuter?

Animal Math:
1+1= 420,000    <- How does that calculate?
One Female Cat​ + One Male Cat = 420,000 Kittens in 7 Years.

Help STOP the Multiplication by spaying or neutering your pets!

Spaying and neutering your pets is the most responsible decision an owner can make. There are so many benefits behind this surgery:

  • a healthier and happier pet

  • a major reduction in the threat of cancer

  • they won’t go through heat cycles

  • they won’t feel the need to get out of the fence and roam the neighborhood

  • they’ll be less likely to attack people and other pets

  • they'll be less inclined to mark their territory

  • it will increase your pet’s life expectancy

BUT MOST IMPORTANT: It will prevent the birth of unwanted companion animals which reduces the pet over-population!!​
