Spay/Neuter Clinic

The Anti-Cruelty Society is committed to providing affordable spay/neuter services to make sure people have access to high-quality, affordable spay/neuter services for their pets. Spaying is the surgery for female dogs and cats; neutering is for males.

Spay/neuter is the single most important gift you can give your pet and they are the most common surgeries performed on pets to prevent them from having unwanted litters. It also improves their health and there are tremendous health and behavioral benefits. Any animal adopted from The Anti-Cruelty Society is already spayed or neutered.

An Experienced and Caring Team

The veterinarians and Clinic staff at The Anti-Cruelty Society have performed thousands of spay /neuter surgeries each year with a personalized focus on each and every pet who walks through our doors. You can feel comfortable that your pet is in the best possible hands.

Each pet begins with a personalized exam by one of our veterinarians to clear them for surgery. If your pet is over six years old, we require a blood work panel to ensure he is healthy enough for the procedure. The health and safety of every one of our pets is our primary concern.


The Anti-Cruelty Society is able to provide the services at a greatly reduced price thanks to the generosity of our committed donors.

  • Cats: $30 male or female
  • Feral cats: No charge
  • Dogs: $130 (male and female) (except pit bull and pit bull mixes)
  • Pit bull and pit bull mix dogs: $60
