Spay / Neuter
for Your Cat or Dog

Spaying and neutering pets will improve their health by preventing or decreasing the chances of some reproductive diseases and cancers. It may also reduce nuisance behaviors such as urine-marking, aggression, and running away to find a mate.

Our clinic offers quality, low-cost spay/neuter services. If you receive public assistance, you might qualify for a greatly reduced rate through the State of Delaware’s subsidized Fixed and Fabulous spay/neuter program.

For all senior pets, 7 years or older, we recommend a physical examination and preoperative blood work to help determine if they are healthy enough to undergo surgery. Additional testing may be necessary based on individual examination by a veterinarian.

Cat S/N: $70

Dog S/N: $160-$240

Community Cats TNR

Trap-Neuter-Return is the humane and effective approach for managing populations of stray and feral cats. Doing TNR requires some planning and coordination with our clinic. Call 1-844-772-9738 for guidance.

In a Trap-Neuter-Return program, community cats are humanely trapped (with box traps), brought to a veterinarian to be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, ear-tipped (the universal sign that a community cat has been neutered and vaccinated), and then returned to their outdoor home. TNR stops the breeding cycle of cats, prevents reproduction and disease, and alleviates the community of nuisance behaviors (yowling, spraying, fighting) associated with unfixed cats. Cats and kittens from our TNR program are evaluated for adoption by our animal care teams.

Spay/neuter of community (feral) cats is now Wednesdays only  Schedule by calling (302) 792-PETS (7387) By Appointment Only  Drop off:  8:30 a.m.–9:15 a.m.  Pick up: Pending recovery – usually scheduled at 4:30 p.m.
