Spay/Neuter Make an Appointment


We are in the process of UPGRADING our spay/neuter scheduling program to make it easier to use in the future. Due to these upgrades, the online spay/neuter scheduler is not available until the end of March.

If you wish to schedule an appointment to have your pet altered, please email us at with the following information:

Pet Owner Name
Phone number
Dog or Cat
Male or Female
Preferred appointment date (Tuesday through Friday)

For more information about our spay/neuter information, please visit our website at We will return your email at our earliest convenience. Any emails we receive over the weekend will be responded to on Monday.

Thank  you for your understanding and our apologies for any inconvenience.

Spaying or neutering your pet is one of the most important things you can do for your pet. The Anti-Cruelty Society’s clinic is able to offer these important surgeries at a greatly reduced price thanks to the generosity of our committed donors.
