Spay and Neuter Surgery Packages

Our spay/neuter packages are provided as a service to the community to help alleviate the pet overpopulation problem, and to be sure all pet owners have access to an affordable spay and neuter option.  These packages are designed to provide a significant value as compared to the cost of other surgeries. This page has been prepared to ensure participants understand how the program works and what is included so there are no misunderstandings.

We are a full service for-profit animal hospital.  Our hospital does not receive any grants or outside financing to perform these procedures at these low fees. We use very high quality surgery and anesthesia protocols to ensure the best outcomes. Unlike non-profit spay neuter clinics we can provide a wider range of services that your pet may need and we are available for follow up care for your pet.

It’s the best of both worlds. The affordability of a non-profit spay and neuter clinic with the support of a full service veterinary hospital. This dynamic is made possible through our partnership with the Humane Society who provide us with our facility, a referral source of patients and they help spread the word about our affordable quality care. 

  • All surgeries REQUIRE a negative heartworm or FIV/FeLV status AND a current rabies vaccine AND a current client-doctor relationship.
  • All Standard Surgery packages include
    • Physical Exam
    • IV catheter
    • Pre-medication with pain and anxiety meds
