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 2,696 free surgeries in 2018. This service is critical to saving thousands of lives in Maricopa County and reducing euthanasia in our shelters. It’s the most cost-effective way to support families and save pets.

Last year, we also rolled out a new update to the free spay and neuter program. The Arizona Pet Project now provides free vaccinations and pays for e-collars and post operation pain medication to ensure there is no cost barrier to families with pets who need preventive care services most. Though this has led to a decrease in the number of surgeries we provide annually, we strongly feel it’s a critical step in ensuring access to care to keep pets happy, healthy, and safely in their homes.

Low-Cost Clinic Locations

A heartfelt thank you to the private veterinarians throughout our community who’ve come together to support low-cost spay and neuter. Please note, each clinic varies in cost – prospective clients should call and inquire about pricing based on species (dog/cat), gender (male/female) and size.
