Affordable Spay/Neuter Clinic
We host weekly Public Spay/Neuter Clinics.
Please see our Clinic Schedule for the next available clinic day.
Why Spay or Neuter?
Giving birth to even one litter can create stress and health risks for any animal.
Mating behaviors such as territorial marking and roaming may be relieved by spaying or neutering your pet. There is no evidence that spaying or neutering changes your pet's personality or creates bad new behaviors.
Spaying or neutering your pet is one positive way you can personally help reduce the number of unwanted animals ending up in shelters. Get more information here

Before your Pet's Surgery
We take every precaution to keep your animal safe and away from sick animals in the shelter. It is very unlikely that your healthy, vaccinated animal will become sick while here for a spay/neuter, but it is possible.
Please make sure your animal is in good health and properly vaccinated prior to scheduling it for surgery. If your pet isn't feeling well, please call us to reschedule!
Take away your pet's food after midnight, but leave their water.
All dogs must be on a leash.
All cat must be brought in their own carrier with a clean towel inside. We do have carriers to rent for $5.
Feral Cats must be in a humane cat trap. Please look at our Trap Neuter Return page for more information about renting feral traps from Cache Humane Society.
After your Pet's Surgery
Your pet should mostly stay inside for 24 hours after surgery so you can keep them warm and monitor their recovery. They may be a little off balance and uncoordinated.
Some nausea is normal after general anesthesia. Please let us know if your animal will not eat or drink, becomes lethargic, or vomits/has diarrhea more than 48 hours after surgery.
Restrict you pet's activity for 7 days. Try to avoid lots of running and jumping!
Your pet's stitches are dissolvable and shouldn't get wet for 7 days. Baby wipes and light sponge baths are OK.
Check the incision site regularly for excessive bleeding or leakage. Do not allow your pet to lick or bite the incision. Cones are available at the shelter.
Your pet should only take the pain medication we provide. Human medication such as Ibuprofen, Tylenol and Aspirin are not safe for your pet and medications previously prescribed by your veterinarian may not be compatible with our medications.
Do not hesitate to contact us during business hours if you have any concerns about your pet immediately after surgery. However, we are not a full-service clinic and do not always have an on-site veterinarian.
Do not allow a spayed female to attempt to mate for a month after surgery, this can cause internal bleeding. If you have male pets, monitor interactions closely so no attempted mating occurs.
