Spay and Neuter Services
Spaying or neutering your puppy or kitten will give them the best start possible and may help your pet live a longer, healthier life. Additionally spaying and neutering can help reduce unwanted litters and animal overpopulation which contributes to overcrowding in shelters, and millions of stray animals. While we are dedicated to pet adoption, we've seen the harmful effects from lack of spaying/neutering. With over a million cats and dogs that are euthanized every year due to overpopulation, we hope to do our part to change that statistic.

When is the best time to have my pet spayed or neutered?
Typically it is recommended to spay or neuter prior to the first heat cycle or sexual maturation in order to maximize your pet's health benefits. Usually that means your pet is between 6-7 months old. Many times large breed dogs grow and mature at a slower rate which means a spay or neuter very well could wait until 9 months to one year. Every pet is different and our veterinarians will examine your pet's healthy thoroughly prior to moving forward with surgery.
