Spay/Neuter

We offer high quality, low-cost spay/neuter services to the community. Please read all the information below to decide if this program is appropriate for your pet.

Not every pet is a good surgical candidate for the humane society spay and neuter clinic. Some pets are better served being seen in a full-service veterinary facility. Please confirm that your pets meet the following criteria prior to scheduling a surgical appointment with us. Pets with medical conditions, injuries or illness will be declined for surgery and referred to a full-service vet. If your pet has fleas, a flea treatment will be given and you will be charged $7 when you pick up your pet.

Spay and Neuter Center Winter Weather Policy:  If Baltimore County schools are closed due to inclement weather, we will be closed that day as well, and we will contact you to reschedule. If schools have a two hour delay, we will still operate as normal.
