Spay/Neuter Guidelines

The Spay/Neuter & Wellness Clinic is OPEN.

We will be operating at 50% capacity and taking clients by appointment only.

  • Any pertinent medical records need to be sent electronically (email- fixmypet@bmorehumane.org
    or fax- 410-833-9251) to BHS by noon on the day BEFORE the pet’s appointment in order for BHS to honor prior vaccinations given.
  • All business will be conducted “curbside”, meaning that no members of the public will be permitted in the building.
  • Credit card payments are preferred to minimize the handling of potentially contaminated cash.

The day of your appointment : 

  • Please park in 1 of 5 parking spaces designated, with signage, specifically for Wellness and S/N customers only.
  • Please call the phone number on the sign when you arrive. A staff member will come out to retrieve your pet.
  • For wellness visits, your pet will be returned to you in the parking lot after the vet exam and/or vaccines are administered.
  • For surgery patients, you will leave your pet and return to the shelter for discharge later in the day. Once again, please park in the designated spaces and call the phone number provided to let staff know you have arrived for pick-up.
  • Please remember, all of the people in the car must be wearing a MASK in order for BHS staff to approach their car.
  • To keep you and our staff safe, we will be enforcing social distancing protocols as recommended by local public health officials. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Spay/Neuter Guidelines

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 $6 when you pick up your pet.

Patients are seen by appointment only.

Surgical pricing for dogs includes injectable pain medication at time of the surgery and oral pain medication to go home with you.
