Spay Neuter Services

We are dedicated to providing affordable, high quality and compassionate care to reduce unwanted litters and create a community without homeless pets. 

Vaccines and testing are available for your dog or cat on the day of surgery. Please note: there is an additional charge of $5 for a fast acting flea treatment (Capstar) for any animals infested with fleas, as the presence of fleas interferes with the sterility of the surgery.

For the health and safety of your pet, surgical bloodwork is required for animals aged 7 and older. We will discuss each case individually with the pet's owner prior to the scheduled surgery.

North Carolina law requires that every dog or cat 14 weeks or older coming in for an appointment have a current rabies vaccine. If your pet does not have a current rabies vaccine, one will be given. If your pet does have a current vaccine, please bring the paperwork from the veterinarian where the vaccine was provided. (We cannot accept the tag.)

All dogs and cats will be given a small green surgical tattoo.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What does spay neuter mean?
    • A spay is a surgery that removes the ovaries and uterus from a female animal. It eliminates the possibility of ovarian and uterine infection and cancer and can also reduce the risk of mammary gland tumors.

      A neuter is a surgery that removes the testicles from a male animal. It prevents testicular tumors in male dogs and can also reduce aggressiveness and roaming behaviors.
  • Does a licensed veterinarian perform the surgeries?
    • Yes. We have full-time veterinarians on staff, all licensed in the state of North Carolina, and all with special advanced training in spay neuter. NC state law mandates that any person performing surgery on an animal be a licensed veterinarian by the North Carolina State Veterinary Board. You can view our veterinarians' credentials on the About Us page.
  • What is the cost?
    • The cost is determined by the sex and type of the animal. You can view our pricing by clicking here.
  • What forms of payment do you accept?
    • We accept all forms of payment EXCEPT CHECKS and Care Credit.
  • Can I walk in with my animal for a surgery?
    • No. All appointments need to be scheduled in advance. The fastest way to schedule is to click here.
  • What are your drop off and pick up times?
    • Drop off time: 7:30 a.m. (we cannot accept animals after 8:00 a.m.)
      Pick up time: Dogs – 3:00 p.m. on the same day of surgery
      Cats – Our protocol is to keep our cats overnight to ensure their safety and a smooth recovery from surgical anesthesia.
      Cat pick up is the next day at 8:30 a.m. at the Lake Norman and Pineville locations and the next day at 7:30 a.m. at the Charlotte location.
  • Can you give my cat/dog vaccinations while he/she is there?
    • Yes. We offer vaccinations and testing to our surgery patients at a reduced price on the day of their pet's scheduled surgery. Click here for pricing.
  • Do you administer pain medication to my pet?
    • Yes. Pain medicine is given during the surgery. We also provide additional pain medication to take home with each patient following the procedure. The cost of the additional medication is included in the surgery fee.
  • Can you microchip my pet?
    • For a $25 fee, we can microchip on surgery days or when we provide low cost medical services. The company that provides our microchips is called Save This Life.

      This chip has technology that allows the person who finds our lost pet to “google” the number on the chip which then sends the pet owner a text or email with a map of where the lost animal has been found. The $25 fee is also good for the lifetime of your pet (there are no additional fees for changing your contact information)
  • Do you perform surgeries on community cats?
  • Can spaying my pet help reduce the chances for breast (mammary gland) cancer?
    • Yes. Mammary gland cancer in pets can be reduced if they're spayed early. For dogs and cats spay before her first heat. In unspayed female dogs, mammary gland tumors are among the most common tumors and at least 50% are cancerous. In unspayed female cats, mammary gland tumors are less common than in dogs, but 85% are cancerous and deadly.
