Question: What is the charge for spaying/neutering my pet?
Answer:The charge for either procedure (spay or neuter) is $30, regardless of the animal's size or other factors (dogs and cats only) that typically affect charges related to animal sterilization surgery. If you cannot show proof of your pet's rabies vaccination, there is an additional $10 charge. The $10 charge covers the cost of administering the rabies vaccination at the time of the spay/neuter surgery. Complete payment of all charges must be made prior to staff confirming any scheduling details related to your pet's spay/neuter surgery. If you are currently unemployed or can demonstrate other financial hardship, you may qualify to receive spay/neuter procedures for your pet free of charge. If you feel you may qualify for this consideration, please make this known up front. All payments are non-refundable, unless procedures are cancelled at least two weekdays (Mon. - Fri.) in advance.
