Spay & Neuter
Spaying your dog or cat is the right thing to do. Spayed or neutered dogs and cats are less likely to be aggressive, have fewer health problems, and are less likely to roam than animals that haven’t been altered. You’ll never have to face finding homes for puppies and kittens that, sadly, too often end up in shelters like ours.
If you have trouble affording spaying or neutering your pet, here are links to some programs that may be able to help:
Dogs & Cats
The Oregon Spay/Neuter Fund offers low-cost spay/neuter coupons for dogs and cats that may be used at some local veterinary clinics.
Oregon Humane Society Spay & Neuter Loan Program provides loans to assist people to pay the cost of spaying or neutering your pet.
The Spay and Save program is available to owned, stray and feral cats of Washington, Multnomah, Clackamas and Clark County residents. To qualify for the special $10 surgery, you must document that you currently receive government assistance such as Medicaid, WIC, Food Stamps, SSI, Section 8 Public Housing, AFDC, TANF, or other qualifying programs.
The Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon provides affordable spay/neuter surgeries for feral cats only.
