Spay or Neuter Clinic Details

You have made a powerful decision to find out more about our spay and neuter clinic. Since 1973, this surgery has been performed on more than 200,000 animals. We offer this affordable service as a way to control the pet overpopulation problem, which nationwide sees an estimated 4 to 6 million dogs and cats euthanized every year.

Will you do your part to lessen this problem by spaying or neutering your pet before they have their first litter?
Our veterinary staff takes these operations very seriously and performs them up to 30 times a day.

Please remember, happy healthy pets also need their annual vaccinations. Please visit the Vaccine Clinic for more information.

What Happens to My Pet?

  • Spaying is the surgical removal of the reproductive organs of the female animal.
  • Neutering is the surgical removal of the reproductive glands of the male animal.
  • Dogs should be spayed or neutered by 6 months of age. For cats we recommend 4 months. Older animals can be treated as long as they are in good health.
  • All sterilization surgery at the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League is performed under general anesthesia by a licensed veterinarian.
  • All dogs and female cats will have a small green tattoo at the surgical site to identify them as a surgically sterilized animal.
