Spay & Neuter
Spaying and neutering pets prevents hundreds of thousands of unwanted dogs and cats from entering our Valley shelters. Through our free spay and neuter program, we provided 8,600 free surgeries in 2015-2016. This service is critical because every two spay/neuter surgeries we perform in Maricopa County saves one life by directly reducing euthanasia in our shelters by one dog or cat. It’s the most cost-effective way to support families and save pets.
