Spaying/Neutering a cat or dog is a routine surgical procedure by a licensed veterinarian. The procedure is performed with the pet under general anesthesia and usually requires minimal hospitalization and a quick recovery time. The animal normally returns home on the same day as the surgery.

Spay/Neuter is an important decision for the good health of your cat or dog. Spaying and neutering is the most effective way to end pet overpopulation.

Cats must be 2 months old, weigh a minimum of 2 pounds, an be in good health to be accepted for Spay/Neuter surgery.

Dogs must be at least 2 months old and be in good health to be accepted for spay/neuter surgery.

Feral cats can be spayed/neutered. Feral/Free Roam, or wild cats, must be humanely trapped and transported in the humane trap to the veterinary clinic for surgery. They must continue to be fed daily after returning to their territory. This will insure their health so they can hold down their territory to prevent other free roam cats from moving in. They are also much better hunters when fed daily!

Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon (FCCO) is a great resource for helping with feral/free foam cats. Traps can be rented for safe trapping and transportation from FCCO. http://www.feralcats.com/

If your pet is pregnant or in-heat, the pet’s owner/guardian is responsible for paying any additional costs to terminate the pregnancy. Every litter hurts and adds to pet overpopulation. Please plan to spay/neuter your dog or cat, even if they are pregnant or in-heat. If you are unable to cover additional costs contact us to see if you qualify for further assistance prior to your pets veterinary appointment.
