Progressive spay/neuter programming is at the forefront of our mission because unnecessary euthanasia can never be the solution to the pet overpopulation crisis in our region. Not only is spay and neuter the only way to compassionately and proactively end this problem – it also keeps your beloved pets healthier and happier.
Schedule Your Spay/Neuter Appointment
We perform pediatric spay/neuter beginning at 8 weeks of age, however, we recommend speaking with your regular veterinarian prior to scheduling to ensure you are choosing the best time to get your pet sterilized.
Spay/neuter appointments are available for owned and community cats. A $50 deposit will be required to schedule an appointment for an owned animal (you will be prompted to pay after entering your information in the online scheduling form). Cancellations must be made 48 hours in advance in order to receive the deposit back.
We are not taking any canine spay/neuter requests at this time due to the current length of our waitlist. This does not apply to the City of Pittsburgh program. If you are in need of alternative spay/neuter recommendations, please call or email our office.
