TRANSPORT UPDATE: Our next available transport date for cats is July 5th. We will post our second July date for both dogs and cats as soon as we receive it from the ASPCA. Due to staff shortages, the ASPCA Spay/Neuter Alliance reduced the number of surgeries they can perform so we book up quickly, especially for female dogs.
LOW COST SPAY/NEUTER PROGRAM
$20, $40, or $100 based on income
To take advantage of our low cost spay/neuter program, through the ASPCA Spay/Neuter Alliance, you must meet eligibility requirements. Everyone must make advance reservations (at our office) as there are a limited number of spaces available on each transport. Due to the high demand for our services, we cannot except out of county residents at this time. Please bring proof of income with you (if not paying full price) when you are signing up. If you are on public assistance, also bring a valid government issued ID. This is required by the NC State Spay/Neuter Fund. Haywood Spay/Neuter does not limit services based on income. If your pet already had a rabies shot, you must bring your rabies certificate as proof when you make your advance reservation. All client information is confidential.
