Spay & Neuter

Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Sources

Spaying and neutering your pets will help reverse the tragedy of pet over-population AND improve the health (and reduce long-term medical costs) of your pet. In addition, neutered males behave better, are less prone to escape and show aggression, and mark less. The best time to spay/neuter for your pet’s health/recovery time and your budget is between four and six months of age.

Below are listed a number of groups that offer low-cost spay and neuter services in the Maryland, Washington, and Virginia area. Please note: the costs listed below are based on recent information but may no longer be in effect. Please check with the veterinarian or shelter for the current costs. In addition, costs may rise if the animal is pregnant, in heat, or if other complications arise.
