Spay or Neuter

Help Stop Pet Overpopulation

You have made a powerful decision to find out more about our spay and neuter clinic. Since 1973, we have offered 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. Our veterinary staff takes these operations very seriously. Will you do your part to lessen pet overpopulation by spaying or neutering your pet before they have their first litter? 

Peggy Adams is doing our best to safely provide spay/neuter surgery for publicly owned cats and dogs. Click here for TNVR.



How to Book Spay/Neuter Appointments

 Appointments are made online-only, and cannot be booked over the phone. Our schedule often quickly fills up, so if you receive an error message please check back. When arriving for your appointment, all dogs must be leashed and cats must be in a carrier.


  • Follow the links below to the Appointment Application for either a cat or a dog.
  • Once the application has been completed, you will be redirected to the appointment sign-up calendar.
  • Choose an open date and book your appointment.



County and state ordinances require that your pet is up to date on a rabies vaccine. Please be prepared to show proof of the rabies vaccine. If your pet is not up to date, you will be required to purchase this vaccine on the day of surgery for an additional cost of $15.00

Please carefully note you have clicked the correct link for either dog or cat surgery - due to limited availability, animals booked under the wrong spot will be removed and will need to be rescheduled.

Learn About the Procedure

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 a male animal.
  • Dogs should be spayed or neutered by 6 months of age. Palm Beach County Ordinance 98-22 requires cats to be spayed or neutered and micro-chipped by four months of age unless medically contraindicated. 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 cats will have a small green tattoo to identify them as surgically sterilized animals. At the conclusion of surgery, a small amount of tattoo ink is placed parallel to the umbilicus for both male and female cats and dogs. This requires a small patch of hair on the midline abdomen to be shaved and prepared during surgical prepping. 
Benefits of the Procedure
  • Behavioral changes including no heat cycles, less desire to roam, decreased aggression, and a reduction or elimination of spraying or marking.
  • Pets are protected from reproductive cancers and other diseases.
  • Dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives.
  • Public health dangers, such as Rabies, are reduced.
