Why Spay and Neuter?

Our beautiful, state-of the-art surgical center enables us to further our commitment to providing access to affordable, high-quality, spay/neuter services with the goal of reducing the number of unplanned pets in our community. We provide compassionate care by licensed and skilled veterinary professionals using quality instruments and supplies. There are significant health benefits to ensuring your pet is spayed/neutered. Our staff are standing by to answer questions about these benefits, or any concerns you may have about your pet undergoing surgery.

Who is eligible to use the clinic?

This program is intended for those who cannot otherwise afford to have their pets altered. It also supports the work of shelters and rescue organizations and enables Good Samaritans caring for feral cats to manage them humanely and affordably. We are not a wellness clinic. Our focus is on spaying and neutering and the limited additional services we offer are only available in conjunction with surgery.

Before Surgery Instructions

Important Information on Vaccinations and Heartworm Testing

New York State Law requires a rabies vaccination for your pet. Please bring your rabies certificate with you. (Your rabies tag is NOT valid proof of vaccination.) If your pet is not vaccinated, we will administer a vaccination for an additional fee of $15. This applies to cats and dogs at least 3 months of age.

For your pet’s protection, our veterinarians require that your dog be vaccinated for distemper (DA2PP) at least two weeks prior to surgery. Your animal will be around many other animals and might be exposed to something (just like when you send your kids to school). It takes two weeks for a vaccination to become fully effective.

Heartworm testing is required for any dog over the age of 1 year. Please bring proof of test within one year. Otherwise, we will test at time of surgery for $20 or $15 (income qualified).

Preparing your pet for his appointment

  • Your pet must be in good health. Please feed pet 1/4 amount of their morning meal.
  • Cat drop-off is at 7:45 am. Dog drop-off is at 8:15 am. Late arrivals will need to be rescheduled.
  • Payment is due at time of drop-off. We accept cash, VISA, MasterCard, Discover and debit cards. We do not accept checks.
  • You will complete necessary paperwork upon arrival. It cannot be faxed or mailed ahead of time. PLEASE LEAVE YOUR PET IN THE CAR UNTIL PAPERWORK IS COMPLETED.
