Spaying and Neutering Your Pets Saves Lives

What Is Spay and Neuter?

  • Female cats and dogs are spayed to prevent pregnancy.

  • Male cats and dogs are neutered to prevent them from getting females pregnant.

  • We offer affordable spay/neuter clinics each month and provide transport to and from the clinic.

Why Should You Spay and Neuter Your Pet?

  • Spaying and neutering reduces the number of unwanted pets that end up in shelters or euthanized every year.

  • Serious health and behavioral problems can be avoided by altering your pet.

  • Fixed pets are less likely to roam, bite, or get into fights during the heat cycle.

When Should You Spay or Neuter Your Pet?

  • Female cats can start reproducing as early as 4 months and go into heat many times throughout the year if they are not spayed.

  • Dogs can start reproducing at 6 months and females go into heat twice a year.

  • Dogs and cats must weigh at least 3 pounds and be 12 weeks or older to be spayed or neutered.

When Are The Clinics Scheduled To Take Place?

Where are the surgeries performed?

    • You must request a spay and neuter form from the DSS office on Farmington Rd

    • Email your approved form to

    • Only Rabies Certificates are considered sufficient proof of vaccination. Tags are not accepted.

    • If you prefer to get your pet a new Rabies Vaccine prior to surgery, you can get a 1-year Rabies Vaccine for $5 (cash only) at the Davie County Animal Shelter during their regular business hours, Tue-Fri 9am-3pm

  • Once we have received your application, you will receive an email within 3 -5 business days confirming we have received it

  • Once your application has been reviewed, your pet’s appointment will be scheduled, or you will be placed on the waitlist for the available date.  Once your pet’s surgery is scheduled, you will receive an email including the clinic instructions of drop off, pick up, clinic date, payments, pre-op instructions, etc.

  • Please keep in mind, there is frequently a waiting list and all applications will be contacted in the order they are received. Appointments will be scheduled according to availability. Clinic spaces are tentative and may change each month due to the clinic’s availability, so sometimes clinic spaces have to be changed, etc.

  • Email any questions to or call 336-751-5214 if you do not have email access

Please note: due to the overwhelming response for the clinics, there may be a delay in application approvals. Applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
