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? 


On Monday, April 19th at 2:00PM the surgery schedule will open for April 28th, 29th, and the 30th. Once the week fills up, please wait until the next Wednesday at 2 PM to book an appointment for the following week.


Together we can save lives!

*There is a limit of three spots per day, per client.

  • Cat Owners: please note that when the calendar opens for the following month, spots are booked very quickly. Therefore, please review carefully before confirming your appointment that it is in a Cat Spay/Neuter spot. If you book an appointment for a Cat in a Dog spot, your appointment will be removed, and you will need to go back in again to book your appointment if there are open spots still available.
  • Dog Owners: to ensure we have an equal number of dogs by gender, please make sure that if you have a male dog it’s booked under Dog Spay/Neuter (MALE) or if you have a female dog it’s booked under Dog Spay/Neuter (FEMALE).
  • Please note that you will not be able to call in via phone to book an appointment. You would need to do it yourself or ask a friend or family member to assist you using your name, phone number, and email address.
  • County and state ordinance require that your pet is up to date on a rabies vaccine. Please be prepared to show prof of rabies vaccine. If the pet is not up to date, you will be required to purchase this vaccine on the day of surgery for an additional cost of $12.00

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 the 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 a surgically sterilized animal. 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.
